Nature Climate Change Perspective, 'Taking climate model evaluation to the next level', by Veronika Eyring and others discusses newly developed tools that improve the evaluation of climate models. Advancement in this area is critical for providing the most credible information possible to stakeholders and policy-makers.

Extremes NatureA collection of articles on Climate and Weather Extremes was recently published in Nature to coincide with the opening of the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2018. The Collection, which highlights research looking at extreme events across the globe and their prediction, is an outcome of the Subseasonal-to-Seasonal (S2S) Prediction Project Extremes Workshop that was held at International Research Institute for Climate and Society at Columbia University in December 2016 (Workshop website).

You can access the collection of papers on the Nature website.
