Can the ocean’s intrinsic dynamics feedback on the atmosphere?

August 17, 2021 10:38 am Published by Comments Off on Can the ocean’s intrinsic dynamics feedback on the atmosphere?

The ocean’s much larger heat capacity acts as “memory” suppressing the atmosphere’s “high-frequency variability” (over time scales of weeks) while producing oceanic motions that vary over longer time scales. This paradigm aims to explain how low-frequency variability emerges in the ocean. But, recently, this paradigm has been challenged.

Research brief: Natural variations shift rain-bearing winds south

June 30, 2020 10:46 am Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Natural variations shift rain-bearing winds south

CLEX researchers found the influence of climate change and the depletion in stratospheric ozone are the major drivers over the Atlantic Oceans that shift westerly winds further south. However, over the Pacific and Indian oceans natural variations induced by sea surface temperature changes in the tropical Pacific also play an important role.

Mon02: Evaluate how the the IPO modulates precipitation extremes and drought risk across tropical continents

In this project, we will investigate the links between precipitation extremes and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO), including its signature in El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) impacts, across tropical land regions.

Research brief: Global warming temperatures set to accelerate as trade winds slow

May 21, 2019 1:01 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Global warming temperatures set to accelerate as trade winds slow

Natural variability has been found to play a role in the speed of warming of land surface temperatures. With indications that the negative Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation is now becoming positive, this suggests that the hiatus period is over and we are likely entering a phase of accelerated warming of global surface air temperatures.
