Recent intensification of wind-driven circulation in the Pacific and the ongoing warming hiatus
The slowdown in global average surface warming has recently been linked to sea surface cooling in the eastern Pacific Ocean. This work shows that strengthening trade winds caused a reduction in theExpand

A unified proxy for ENSO and PDO variability since 1650
Abstract. In this manuscript we have attempted to consolidate the common signal in previously defined proxy reconstructions of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation into one individual proxy titled theExpand

Enhanced warming over the global subtropical western boundary currents
Subtropical western boundary currents are warm, fast-flowing currents that form on the western side of ocean basins. They carry warm tropical water to the mid-latitudes and vent large amounts of heatExpand

Northern hemispheric interdecadal variability : A coupled air-sea mode
A coupled air‐sea mode in the Northern Hemisphere with a period of about 35 years is described. The mode was derived from a multicentury integration with a coupled ocean‐atmosphere generalExpand

Deepwater Formation in the North Pacific During the Last Glacial Termination
Switching Basins Most of the densest, deepest water at the bottom of the oceans comes from two regions, the North Atlantic and the circum-Antarctic. Have other regions been able to produceExpand

ENSO and greenhouse warming
This Review looks at the state of knowledge on the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), a natural climate phenomenon. It discusses recent advances and insights into how climate change will affectExpand

Recent Walker circulation strengthening and Pacific cooling amplified by Atlantic warming
The Pacific trade winds have strengthened since the late 1990s, and there has been related strengthening of the atmospheric Walker circulation. Although the impacts of these changes are becomingExpand

Radiocarbon age anomaly at intermediate water depth in the Pacific Ocean during the last deglaciation
[1] Benthic and planktonic 14C ages are presented for the last glacial termination from marine sediment core VM21-30 from 617 m in the eastern equatorial Pacific. The benthic-planktonic 14C ageExpand

Modulation of the bipolar seesaw in the Southeast Pacific during Termination 1
The termination of the last ice age (Termination 1; T1) is crucial for our understanding of global climate change and for the validation of climate models. There are still a number of open questionsExpand
