Abstract

Climate models predict worldwide climatic changes as a result of increases of CO2 concentrations of the atmosphere. Such predictions, being the result of a theoretical exercise, are to be validated against observations. This creates the problem of detection of the CO2-induced climatic change in real nature, which is the subject of this chapter.
