JAN 2009 - Research Spotlight

In their recently published article in Nature, EPS graduate student Alexander (Zan) Stine, Harvard fauculty member Peter Huybers, and EPS faculty member Inez Fung have found a shift towards earlier seasonal transitions in the temperature record over extratropical land in the last 57 years. This shift is anomolous when compared to the variability seen in the preceeding 100 years, and is not predicted by any of the model-based simulations of 20th century climate reported by the IPCC.
