    • We have developed a new method in analyzing atmospheric model simulations entitled "Factor Separation Method". The method is currently used by several groups in US (CSU, Univ. of Washington, NASA), Canada, Belgium, Spain, Israel. An e-mail group of over 40 users of the method was established in 1996. You can join the group by writing to me.
