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 ...
A quantitative analysis of the physical mechanisms governing the life cycles of persistent flow anomalies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-05)
