This scaling was done in a reduced spatio-temporal space applying optimal fingerprinting (or optimal detection method; cf. Weaver and Zwiers 2000; Zwiers 2002). The strength of the method is that the prediction is minimally affected by the uncertainty in climate sensitivity and ocean heat uptake. In other words, the models are not required to simulate the amplitude of the response accurately, but merely its structure. A limitation is that this approach is not applicable if for example the balance between GHG and sulphate aerosol forcing changes with time.

For example recent observational studies (Curry et al. 2003) showed that the anthropogenic signal is evident in the salinity field in the Atlantic Ocean during the past four decades. This suggests that the salinity field could serve as a potential constraint. Here the focus was on estimating the uncertainty of climate projections. Next, we continue to address probabilistic methods and introduce quantitative statistical measures of forecast uncertainty, with a specific focus on the interface to operational application and the end-user perspective.
