Impacts of the north and tropical Atlantic Ocean on the Antarctic Peninsula and sea ice
In recent decades, Antarctica has experienced pronounced climate changes. The Antarctic Peninsula exhibited the strongest warming of any region on the planet, causing rapid changes in land ice.Expand

Atlantic-induced pan-tropical climate change over the past three decades
The dipole-like trend of tropical sea surface temperature is investigated and this study finds it to be initiated in the Atlantic Ocean. Atlantic warming drives wind and circulation changes andExpand

Mechanisms of Arctic Surface Air Temperature Change in Response to the Madden–Julian Oscillation
AbstractUsing lagged composites and projections with the thermodynamic energy equation, in this study the mechanisms that drive the boreal winter Arctic surface air temperature (SAT) changeExpand

Modulation of the boreal wintertime Madden‐Julian oscillation by the stratospheric quasi‐biennial oscillation
Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO), the dominant mode of intraseasonal variability in the tropical troposphere, has a significant impact on global weather and climate. Here we present that theExpand

Stratospheric Control of the Madden–Julian Oscillation
AbstractInterannual variation of seasonal-mean tropical convection over the Indo-Pacific region is primarily controlled by El Nino–Southern Oscillation (ENSO). For example, during El Nino winters,Expand

Arctic Response to an MJO-Like Tropical Heating in an Idealized GCM
AbstractUsing an initial-value approach with an idealized general circulation model, the mechanisms by which the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) influences the Arctic surface air temperature (SAT)Expand

The impact of the Madden‐Julian Oscillation trend on the Arctic amplification of surface air temperature during the 1979–2008 boreal winter
[1] One of the most prominent and important features of climate change is that surface air temperature (SAT) change is greatest at high latitudes. The cause for this Arctic amplification of SAT isExpand

Observed connection between stratospheric sudden warmings and the Madden‐Julian Oscillation
[1] The effect of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) on the Northern Hemisphere wintertime stratospheric polar vortex and major, mid-winter stratospheric sudden warmings (SSWs) is evaluated using aExpand

A Rossby Wave Bridge from the Tropical Atlantic to West Antarctica
AbstractTropical Atlantic sea surface temperature changes have recently been linked to circulation anomalies around Antarctica during austral winter. Warming in the tropical Atlantic associated withExpand

On the Causal Relationship between Poleward Heat Flux and the Equator-to-Pole Temperature Gradient: A Cautionary Tale
AbstractAn increase in the poleward heat or energy transport is often ascribed to a strengthening of the equator-to-pole gradient in temperature or in the top-of-the-atmosphere (TOA) net radiation.Expand
