Comparison of Variations in Atmospheric Quantities with Sea Surface Temperature Variations in the Equatorial Eastern Pacific
Abstract Sea surface temperature (SST) variations in the equatorial eastern Pacific (0–10°S, 180–90°W) are compared with variations in atmospheric temperature, circulation, rainfall andExpand

Variations and Trends in Tropospheric and Stratospheric Global Temperatures, 1958–87
Abstract Examined in this paper are the variations and trends in tropospheric and low-stratospheric temperature for seven climatic zones, hemispheres, and world for intervals 1958–87 and 1973–87,Expand

Radiosonde Atmospheric Temperature Products for Assessing Climate (RATPAC): A new data set of large‐area anomaly time series
[1] A new data set containing large-scale regional mean upper air temperatures based on adjusted global radiosonde data is now available up to the present. Starting with data from 85 of the 87Expand

Air stagnation climatology for the United States (1948--1998)
It has been observed that major air pollution episodes are usually related to the presence of stagnating anticyclones. Such anticyclones may linger over an area for a protracted period (4 days orExpand

Stratospheric warming due to Agung, El Chichón, and Pinatubo taking into account the quasi‐biennial oscillation
Radiosonde data are used to estimate the impact on stratospheric temperature of Agung, El Chichon, and Pinatubo volcanic eruptions, taking into account the quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO). This isExpand

Quasi-Biennial Variations in Temperature, Total Ozone, and Tropopause Height
Abstract An analysis of mean-monthly temperature and total ozone data suggests that quasi-biennial oscillations extend to the temperate and polar latitudes of both hemispheres. Basically, there isExpand

Changes in the 300-mb North Circumpolar Vortex, 1963–2001
Abstract The mean monthly polar stereographic map analyses of the Free University of Berlin terminated at the end of 2001. This paper summarizes the changes in size of the 300-mb north circumpolarExpand

Downward-Propagating Temperature Anomalies in the Preconditioned Polar Stratosphere.
Abstract Dynamical links of the Northern Hemisphere stratosphere and troposphere are studied, with an emphasis on whether stratospheric changes have a direct effect on tropospheric weather andExpand

Quasi-Biennial Variations in the ``CENTERS of Action''
Abstract Quasi-biennial (about 28-mo) variations in surface pressure occur in the vicinity of the North Atlantic and North Pacific subtropical Highs and subpolar Lows, with harmonic amplitudes ofExpand

Impact of El Niño on the delineation of tropospheric cooling due to volcanic eruptions
It is well known that there has been a close relation between sea surface temperature (SST) variations in the eastern equatorial Pacific (El Nino region) and tropospheric temperature variations inExpand
