The recent so-called “hiatus” in global warming drew considerable attention from the both the scientific community and general public, and several hundred peer-reviewed manuscripts were published to further our understanding of it. Here, a collection of various retrospective assessments of the event are presented that address its phenomenology, early indications and key insights regarding its origins and evolution, and the current state of our understanding given the challenges involved in monitoring transient variability in Earth’s climate. The collection illustrates the synergistic use of models and observations in understanding the evolving climate state and its implications for the future.
