"The remote impacts of climate feedbacks on regional climate predictability"

This week Cristi Proistosescu will be leading discussion on Roe et al. 2015 (papers attached): The remote impacts of climate feedbacks on regional climate predictability. Cristi says the following about the paper:

"In this paper the author use a a moist energy balance model in conjunction with locally defined feedbacks to asses the relationship between uncertainties in feedback patterns and uncertainties in temperature response patterns. They find that uncertainties in tropical feedbacks induce a global response, whereas uncertainties in high latitude feedbacks tend to be regionally confined. Two additional short papers are provided, containing more details on the moist energy balance model and the local feedback formalism."
