Abstract
We apply the novel method of potential analysis to study climatic records. The method comprises (i) derivation of the number of climate states from time series, (ii) derivation of the potential coefficients. Dynamically monitoring patterns of potential analysis yields indications of possible bifurcations and transitions of the system. The method is tested on artificial data and then applied to various climatic records [1,2]. It can be applied to a wide range of stochastic systems where time series of sufficient length and temporal resolution are available and transitions or bifurcations are surmised. A recent application of the method in a model of globally coupled bistable systems [3] confirms its general applicability for studying time series in statistical physics.
