In addition to the North Atlantic circulation anomalies one would expect by assuming an equivalent barotropic structure, in CCM3 our NAO index is associated with perturbations over the entire Northern Hemisphere.

Centers of correlation with values greater than exist in every quadrant of the hemisphere.

Winter mean hPa height anomalies, representing the average atmospheric circulation during the snow season, are compared with snowpack measurements made on or about 1 April at snowcourse 7stations in the western USA during the winters of – through – The corresponding intraseasonal circulation anomalies are similarly translated farther east.

We compare circulation anomalies in 'extreme' warm and cold winters (temperatures greater or less than 1 sd from the mean for the 92 period) and discuss how these anomalies. Fig. 1A and B illustrates mean atmospheric circulation anomaly patterns of the Southern Hemisphere during P 1 for the ablation season and accumulation seasons, respectively.

Note that because the data are processed in two yr blocks, anomaly maps for P 1 and P 2 are mirror images of each other — for the sake of brevity only the former are shown. For P 1, hPa heights are lower. WB 10 Hemispheric Teleconnections of Mean Circulation Anomalies at Millibars.

Similarly, Fig. 3, Fig. 4 show the master map of normalized atmospheric circulation anomalies and composites of surface air temperature anomalies in summer months (JJA). The least frequent node is SOM (%), while the most frequent node is SOM (%).

In general, the intensity of geopotential height anomaly is weaker in summer months than that in winter months. [5] Coming to the focus of this paper, most studies of associations between the NAO and regional to hemispheric climate have been during winter, when the largest amplitude anomalies in mean sea level pressure (MSLP) occur and NAO variability is larger than in other seasons [Hurrell et al., ].

Alex Sen Gupta, Ben McNeil, in The Future of the World's Climate (Second Edition), Southern Annular Mode (SAM) The Southern Annular Mode (SAM) or Antarctic Oscillation is the dominant pattern of natural variability in the Southern Hemisphere outside the tropics.

) analysis of sea temperatures at coastal sta­ tions confirm the large winter sea temperature anomaly in coastal areas of southeastern United. The Northern Hemisphere also demonstrates large internal variability, with a positive annular mode response evident in simulation 14 and a negative response evident in simulation 32 (Figures 1a and 1b).

Unlike the SAM, the forced NAM response is not significant (Figure 1d). Barnes et al. [] find that the CMIP5 Northern Hemisphere circulation anomalies following Pinatubo do not.

In this progress report, we focus on a number of recent papers that, broadly defined, assess two realms of teleconnections: the North Atlantic circulation, largely focusing on the North Atlantic. Figure 4 illustrates the Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation anomaly patterns for high and low EOSS Alps years.

Of the six full decades included in the study, the s display the most southerly extent of the USPV for any decade (μ = °N), while the highest mean latitudes (μ = °N) are found in the s.

The mass loss of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) in the 21st century draws a lot of attention because of its contribution to global sea level rise (Bindoff et alPeltierShepherd et alHanna et al ).This contribution is thought to be composed equally of surface runoff and ice dynamics (Rignot et al ).Severe surface melting was observed in, andwhen the.

P PERSISTENT POSITIVE ANOMALIES IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE CIRCULATION k* NIWA, Wellington, New Zealand 1. INTRODUCTION Persistent positive anomalies (PPAs, or "blocking") are an important feature of intraseasonal variability in the extratropical atmospheric circulation.

PPAs can have significant effects on seasonal-mean climate.The spatial structure of the – composite Western Hemisphere DJF SAT and circulation anomalies for three selected MJO Phases (2, 5, and 7) is shown in Figure 2.

This transformation is described and attributed to forcing by remote and persistent circulations acting.
