The Seasonal Attribution Project is a Climateprediction.net sub-project, with support from the WWF. It runs a high resolution model in order to try to determine the extent to which extreme weather events are attributable to human-induced global warming.

The project did cease giving out more work, however there has been a project extension to try a fourth sea surface temperature pattern.[1] Current work will still be accepted and used for collaborations and possibly revisions of papers during the review process.

A further extension will start soon.[2]

The Experiments[edit]

  • United Kingdom floods of Autumn 2000 – Current project.[3]
  • Mountain snowpack decline in western North America Developed in collaboration with the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington.[4]
  • Heatwave occurrence in South Africa and India

The latter two will use the same models. Information has been uploaded but analysis of information generated has not yet started.
