Summary
Abstract: The trends presented here used new daily air-temperature data sets to develop
the use of time varying percentiles that can estimate recent climatic change in
innovative ways. Recent climatic change can be manifested in frequency
distributions through a variety of changes to central tendency, variance, and
other shape measures. Therefore, a comprehensive procedure for the
simultaneous detection of trends in all portions of air temperature frequency
distributions was needed. See the paper below for more information:
