  • INTERDECADAL VARIATIONS

Item #d94jan43

Three items from J. Clim., 6(11), Nov. 1993:

"Interdecadal Variations of the Thermohaline Circulation in a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model," T. Delworth (GFDL, POB 308, Princeton NJ 08542), S. Manabe, R.J. Stouffer, J. Clim., 6(11), 1993-2011, Nov. 1993.

A fully coupled model shows irregular oscillations of the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation with a 50-year time scale.

"Structure and Seasonality of Interannual and Interdecadal Variability of the Geopotential Height and Temperature Fields in the Northern Hemisphere Troposphere," J.M. Wallace (Dept. Atmos. Sci., AK-40, Univ. Washington, Seattle WA 98195), Y. Zhang, K.-H. Lau, 2063-2082. Empirical orthogonal functions are used to study characteristics of variations related to the Pacific/North American teleconnection pattern since 1946, and their manifestation in seasonal temperature trends.

"Toward Understanding the Causes of Low Frequency Variability: The Interannual Standard Deviation of Monthly Mean 700 mb Height," A.G. Barnston (Clim. Analysis Ctr., NMC/NWS/NOAA, W/NMC 51, WWB RM 604, Washington DC 20233), H.M. van den Dool, 2083-2102. Presents some of the more interesting characteristics of the 700 mb height over the 1950-1991 period that are published in a separate atlas as a reference for climate-related studies, and compares them to a 10-year model run.


Item #d94jan44

"Surface Climate Variations Over the North Atlantic Ocean During Winter: 1900-1989," C. Deser (CIRES, Campus Box 449, Univ. Colorado, Boulder CO 80309), M.L. Blackmon, J. Clim., 6(9), 1743-1753, Sep. 1993. Results are based on empirical orthogonal analyses of SSTs, air temperature, wind, and sea level pressure.


Item #d94jan45

"Sea-Ice Anomalies in the Western Arctic and Greenland-Iceland Sea and Their Relation to an Interdecadal Climate Cycle," L.A. Mysak (Ctr. Clim. & Global Change Res., McGill Univ., Montreal PQ H3A 2K6, Can.), S.B. Power, Clim. Bull., 26(3), 147-176, Dec. 1992.

Large sea-ice extents and low salinities observed during the late 1980s can be attributed to prior high runoff into the Beaufort Sea. The spatial propagation of ice anomalies is analyzed and related to Arctic and lower latitude interdecadal variations.
