  • Arctic amplification decreases temperature variance in Northern mid- to high-latitudes 

    Screen, James A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    Changes in climate variability are arguably more important for society and ecosystems than changes in mean climate, especially if they translate into altered extremes [1, 2, 3]. There is a common perception and growing ...
