Variability of the South Pacific Convergence Zone and its influence on the general atmospheric circulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-11-15)
Intense atmospheric convection associated with the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ) significantly impacts basin-scale circulation patterns over the Pacific. We explore dynamical processes which foster changes in ...
Intraseasonal Dynamical Evolution of the Northern Annular Mode
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-04-21)
Recent observational and modeling studies indicate a robust dynamical coupling between the stratosphere and troposphere during boreal winter. This coupling occurs in association with the Northern Annular Mode (NAM), which ...
Interrelationships Among Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation Regimes and Surface Temperature Anomalies in the North American Arctic
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-07-08)
The focus of this study is to examine the mechanisms involved in the interactions among large-scale atmospheric circulation patterns and how they are related to surface air temperature anomalies in the North American Arctic. ...
Diagnostic studies of extratropical intraseasonal variability in the northern hemisphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-04-11)
A comprehensive analysis of midlatitude intraseasonal variability in extended integrations of General Circulation Models (GCMs) developed at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center is ...
The dynamical influence of the stratospheric polar vortex on the atmospheric global circulation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997-12)
An assessment of contour advection and its use in examining vortex dynamics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999-08)
The potential influences of ENSO on interhemispheric transport
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997-08)
Temporal variations of monsoon systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-09-09)
It has been proposed that the Asian-Australasian monsoon system is influenced by large-scale sea-surface temperature (SST) variability in the three tropical oceans although how this influence is manifested has remained a ...
On the uncertainties and dynamics of Pacific interannual and decadal climate variability and climate change
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-11)
Tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal climate variability substantially impact physical and biological systems in the Pacific Ocean and strongly influence global climate through teleconnection patterns. Current ...
A simple zonal average energy budget model of the earth-atmosphere system
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1989-12)
