AGU Journal Highlights -- Sept. 24, 2013

tly attributing changes in rainfall to global warming is difficult because climate models have limited precisions and because extreme events are rare and occur at irregular intervals.

To put that link on firmer footing, Benestad used a statistical analysis to determine whether extreme precipitation is related to global mean temperatures. The author used an empirical relationship, showing that daily rainfall amounts follow an exponential distribution, to determine that slow variations in the observed heavy precipitation events (the wet day 95th percentile) on a global scale follow the changes in the global mean temperature. Using this relationship, the author conducted a multiple regression analysis on rain gauge data and global surface air temperature data to show statistically that recent trends in wet day 95th percentile precipitation amounts are influenced by global mean temperatures.

Title: Association between trends in daily rainfall percentiles and the global mean temperature

2. The mixed mechanisms of large-earthquake nucleation

An important open question in seismology is: Where do big earthquakes come from? High-energy earthquakes often come from faults under high strain, but the mechanism that underlies their onset is still debated.

The strength of an earthquake depends in part on the size of the region that first starts to slip, with a larger "nucleation" region generally spawning a stronger earthquake. There are two hypotheses for the source of major earthquakes. One is that large earthquakes are necessarily triggered by large nucleation regions. The second is
