ETCCDI Extremes Indices Archive
Published in 2013. Version N/A.

The climate extremes indices defined by the Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI) are computed for a number of global climate models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 3 (CMIP3) and Phase 5 (CMIP5), and reanalyses. The definitions of the indices are given here. The validation of climate extremes indices and analysis of their projected future changes simulated by the CMIP5 models is presented in Sillmann et al. (2013a, 2013b)
