Short summary
Researchers utilize various algorithms to identify extreme weather features in climate data, and we seek to answer this question: given a plausible weather event detector, how does uncertainty in the detector impact scientific results? We generate a suite of statistical models that emulate expert identification of weather features. We find that the connection between El Niño and atmospheric rivers – a specific extreme weather type – depends systematically on the design of the detector.
