    The influence of El Niño--Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on crop production in the southeastern United States was studied to identify crops that are vulnerable to ENSO-related weather variability and therefore likely to benefit from application of ENSO-based climate forecasts. The historical...

  • Prediction of Tropical Atlantic Sea Surface Temperatures Using Linear Inverse Modeling. Penland, Cécile; Matrosova, Ludmilla // Journal of Climate;3/1/98, Vol. 11 Issue 3, p483 

    The predictability of tropical Atlantic sea surface temperature on seasonal to interannual timescales by linear inverse modeling is quantified. The authors find that predictability of Caribbean Sea and north tropical Atlantic sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTAs) is enhanced when one uses...

    ABSTRACT North America experienced sustained and strong surface warming during 1997 and 1998. This period coincided with a dramatic swing of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), with El Nino in 1997 rapidly replaced by La Nina in 1998. An additional aspect of the sea surface temperatures...

  • Toward a Nonlinear Identification of the Atmospheric Response to ENSO. Hannachi, A. // Journal of Climate;5/1/2001, Vol. 14 Issue 9, p2138 

    ABSTRACT Motivated by the need to understand the nature of the remote atmospheric climate signal associated with El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), the question is addressed of estimating the nonlinear atmospheric response to ENSO using state-of-the-art general circulation models (GCMs). A...

    The Flexible Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System Model-gamil (FGOALS-g) was used to study the spring prediction barrier (SPB) in an ensemble system. This coupled model was developed and maintained at the State Key Laboratory of Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (LASG). There...

    A multiple regression analysis of the NCEP–NCAR reanalysis dataset shows a response to increased solar activity of a weakening and poleward shift of the subtropical jets. This signal is separable from other influences, such as those of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the...

    To explore the vertical coherence of the vertical temperature structure in the atmosphere, an analysis is performed of the full three-dimensional spatial structure of the temperature field monthly mean anomalies from the 40-yr ECMWF Re-Analysis (ERA-40) for a core region of the Tropics from...

  • Precipitation and Temperature Variations on the Interannual Time Scale: Assessing the Impact of ENSO and Volcanic Eruptions. Guojun Gu; Adler, Robert F. // Journal of Climate;May2011, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p2258 

    The effects of ENSO and two large tropical volcanic eruptions (El Chichóón, March 1982; Mt. Pinatubo, June 1991) are examined for the period of 1979--2008 using various satellite- and station-based observations of precipitation, temperature (surface and atmospheric), and tropospheric water...
