    The article describes the geography of the Kingdom of Norway. The northern regions of Norway lie within the Arctic Circle, though the climate is not as cold as might be expected since the North Atlantic Drift brings warm, damp air to the whole country. Temperatures in Oslo are highest in July...

    To study the internal variability of the model and its consequences on seasonal statistics, large ensembles of twenty 3-month simulations of the Canadian Regional Climate Model (CRCM), differing only in their initial conditions, were generated over different domain sizes in eastern North America...

  • A new evaporation duct climatology over the South China Sea. Shi, Yang; Yang, Kunde; Yang, Yixin; Ma, Yuanliang // Journal of Meteorological Research;Oct2015, Vol. 29 Issue 5, p764 

    The climatology of evaporation ducts is important for shipborne electromagnetic system design and application. The evaporation duct climatology that is currently used for such applications was developed in the mid 1980s; this study presents efforts to improve it over the South China Sea (SCS) by...

    In a tier-two seasonal prediction system, prior to AGCM integration, global SSTs should first be predicted as a boundary condition to the AGCM. In this study, a global SST prediction system has been developed as a part of the tier-two seasonal prediction system. This system uses predictions from...

    This study aims to know the distribution of the different temperate bioclimates in Kazakhstan. Fifty four meteorologic stations distributed all around Kazakhstan were classified following S. Rivas-Martínez's method. As a result, thirty eight stations are Temperate xeric, all of which stepic;...

  • Ensemble Calibration of 500-hPa Geopotential Height and 850-hPa and 2-m Temperatures Using Reforecasts. Hamill, Thomas M.; Whitaker, Jeffrey S. // Monthly Weather Review;Sep2007, Vol. 135 Issue 9, p3273 

    An examination of the benefits of ensemble forecast calibration was performed for three variables: 500-hPa geopotential height (Z500), 850-hPa temperature (T850), and 2-m temperature (T2M). A large reforecast dataset was used for the calibration. Two calibration methods were examined: a...
