  • The IPCC on a heterogeneous Medieval Warm Period. Esper, Jan; Frank, David // Climatic Change;Jun2009, Vol. 94 Issue 3/4, p267 

    In their 2007 report, IPCC working group 1 refers to an increased heterogeneity of climate during medieval times about 1000 years ago. This conclusion would be of relevance, as it implies a contrast in the spatial signature and forcing of current warmth to that during the Medieval Warm Period....

    Initialization of the moisture profiles has been used to overcome the imbalance between analysis schemes and prediction models that generates the so-called spinup problem seen in the hydrological fields. Here precipitation assimilation through moisture adjustment has been proposed as a technique...

  • Factors Associated with Decadal Variability in Great Plains Summertime Surface Temperatures. Weaver, Scott J. // Journal of Climate;Jan2013, Vol. 26 Issue 1, p343 

    Decadal variability of summertime Great Plains surface temperature is probed from the perspective of the Great Plains low-level jet (GPLLJ). GPLLJ variability modes 2 and 5 are shown to be most influential on the evolution and magnitude of Great Plains surface temperature anomalies over the...

    The evolution of supersynoptic (i.e., pentad) Great Plains low-level jet (GPLLJ) variability, its precipitation impacts, and large-scale circulation context are analyzed in the North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR)--a high-resolution precipitation-assimilating dataset--and the NCEP--NCAR...

    Southwest China (SC) has suffered a series of super extreme droughts in the last decade. This study analyzed the temporal and spatial variations of drought in SC from 1961 to 2012. Based on precipitation anomaly index (PAI) that was derived from 1 km gridded precipitation data, three time scales...

    This paper examines the influence of moist Atlantic air masses on East African precipitation receipt during periods of westerly outbreaks across East Africa. The influence of the Indian Ocean on the interannual variability of East African rainfall is widely known, but there is also a less well...

    Seasonal precipitation anomalies associated with the continental North American monsoon system are characterized using a land-based dataset derived from in situ observations across the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. Coherent regions of interannual continental precipitation...
