Blocking and its Response to Climate Change
TLDR
We review the state of knowledge regarding blocking under climate change, with the aim of providing an overview for those working in related fields. Expand

Equator-to-pole temperature differences and the extra-tropical storm track responses of the CMIP5 climate models
This paper aims to understand the physical processes causing the large spread in the storm track projections of the CMIP5 climate models. In particular, the relationship between the climate changeExpand

Deconstructing the climate change response of the Northern Hemisphere wintertime storm tracks
There are large uncertainties in the circulation response of the atmosphere to climate change. One manifestation of this is the substantial spread in projections for the extratropical storm tracksExpand

On the role of the ocean in projected atmospheric stability changes in the Atlantic polar low region
[1] The occurrence of destructive mesoscale ‘polar low’ cyclones in the subpolar North Atlantic is projected to decline under anthropogenic change, due to an increase in atmospheric static stability.Expand

How large are projected 21st century storm track changes
[1] Projected changes in the extra-tropical wintertime storm tracks are investigated using the multi-model ensembles from both the third and fifth phases of the World Climate Research Programme'sExpand

Arctic warming, atmospheric blocking and cold European winters in CMIP5 models
Amplified Arctic warming is expected to have a significant long-term influence on the midlatitude atmospheric circulation by the latter half of the 21st century. Potential influences of recent andExpand

Midlatitude atmospheric circulation responses under 1.5 and 2.0 °C warming and implications for regional impacts
Abstract. This study investigates the global response of the midlatitude atmospheric circulation to 1.5 and 2.0 °C of warming using the HAPPI (Half a degree Additional warming, Prognosis andExpand

Rossby wave propagation on potential vorticity fronts with finite width
The horizontal gradient of potential vorticity (PV) across the tropopause typically declines with lead time in global numerical weather forecasts and tends towards a steady value dependent on modelExpand

Instability of surface‐temperature filaments in strain and shear
The effects of uniform straining and shearing on the stability of a surface quasi-geostrophic temperature filament are investigated. Straining is shown to stabilize perturbations for wide filamentsExpand

Diabatic generation of negative potential vorticity and its impact on the North Atlantic jet stream
Localised regions of negative potential vorticity (PV) are frequently seen on the equatorward flank of the upper-tropospheric jet streams in analysis and forecast products. Their positioning, on theExpand
