Precipitation (Variability - Asia) -- Summary

January 2013
CO2 Science;1/23/2013, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p2
The article discusses several studies to assess climate alarmists' contention that global warming is responsible for creating more frequent and greater extremes of weather. N. Pederson et al reconstructed annual precipitation and streamflow histories for northeastern Mongolia for the period of 1651-1995, and found no relation between variations over the recent period of instrumental data to the prior record.
