Processes underlying climate variability characterize its deterministic (catastrophes and hysteresis) and stochastic (resonances and long range persistence) nature, and both merge under the more general topic of predictability. Applied aspects, besides prediction, are the diagnosis of the past related to global change and the attribution of the causes related to climate and human induced forcing. Employing a spectrum from complex via intermediate to toy models these subjects are being analyzed focusing – more recently – on the rainfall-runoff chain from watershed to continental scales.
