Article
The Mediterranean region is strongly affected by Extreme Precipitation Events (EPEs), sometimes leading to severe negative impacts on society, economy, and the environment. Understanding such natural hazards and their drivers is essential to mitigate related risks. Here, EPEs over the Mediterranean between 1979 and 2019 are analyzed, using ERA5, th...
Article
While the evidence for anthropogenic climate change continues to strengthen, and concerns about severe weather events are increasing, global projections of regional climate change are still uncertain due to model‐dependent changes in large‐scale atmospheric circulation, including over North Atlantic and Europe. Here, the Jenkinson‐Collison classifi...

Projected changes in summer precipitation deficits partly depend on alterations in synoptic circulations. Here, the automated Jenkinson-Collison (JC) classification is used to assess the ability of twenty-one Global Climate Models (GCMs) to capture the frequency of recurring circulation types (CTs) and their implications for European daily precipit...

This work uses the Jenkinson-Collison automatic classification to derive daily synoptic atmospheric circulations in a region centred over Germany. We evaluate past and future changes in the seasonal frequencies of synoptic weather patterns over central and western Europe. A set of three reanalyses and eight Global Climate Models (GCMs) from the Cou...

This work quantifies the connections between Extreme Precipitation Events over the Mediterranean and large-scale atmospheric flow patterns. It is shown that conditioning the extremes to large-scale patterns increases the occurrence probability more than 3-fold, compared to the nominal one. Moreover, orography further enhances such connections. Thes...

Question
I am looking forward to working with these datasets for Mean Sea Level Pressure. However, I wonder if there is a possibility of downloading the data with a certain defined resolution (e.g. 10° lon x 5° lat) for a determined area?
