TREND ANALYSIS: Storm Trends
Storm Surges Provide Unique Climate Record," K. Zhang (Lab. Coastal Res., Univ.
Maryland, College Pk. MD 20742), B.C. Douglas, S.P. Leatherman,Eos, Trans. Amer.
Geophys. Union, 78(37), 389, 396-397, Sep. 16, 1997.
Analysis of hourly tide-gauge records from Atlantic City and Charleston shows
interdecadal variation of storminess, but no long-term trend in storm activity or severity
during the 20th century. Results suggest, but do not prove conclusively, a lack of
response to global warming along the U.S. Atlantic coast during this century.
Anticyclone Changes on the Central Gulf Coast of the USA," R.V. Rohli (Dept. Geog.,
Kent State Univ., Kent OH 44242), K.G. Henderson,Intl. J. Climatol., 17,
1183-1193, Sep. 1997.
Uses a cyclone-model-based weather classification system to identify long-term trends
over the period 1961-1989. Results suggest that days dominated by mid-latitude cold-season
anticyclones of continental origin have decreased in frequency; those of Pacific origin
have become more common.
