The principal mode of the seasonal variation of the Asian summer monsoon (ASM) and the temporal and spatial evolution of the corresponding synoptic fields are investigated via cyclostationary EOF analysis. This study uses the 21-year (1979-99) Xie-Arkin precipitation pentad data and National Center for Environmental Prediction daily reanalysis data focusing(More)
The impact of model microphysics on the relationships among hydrometeor profiles, latent heating, and derived satellite microwave brightness temperatures T B have been examined using a nonhydrostatic, adap-tive-grid cloud model to simulate a mesoscale convective system over water. Two microphysical schemes (each employing three-ice bulk parameterizations)(More)
We use the CSIRO-Mk3.6 coupled climate model to examine the impact of anthro-pogenic aerosols (AAs) and long-lived greenhouse gases (GHGs) on aspects of the global ocean circulation. Focusing on the second half of the twentieth century, we compare multiple ten member ensembles of historical climate change, which are forced by different combinations of(More)
Sea ice loss is accelerating in the Barents and Kara Seas (BKS). Assessing potential linkages between sea ice retreat/thinning and the region's ancient and unique social-ecological systems is a pressing task. Tundra nomadism remains a vitally important livelihood for indigenous Nenets and their large reindeer herds. Warming summer air temperatures have been(More)
Developed in this article are theories of the so-called linear estimation techniques. The methods are exclusively based on the space-time empirical orthogonal functions which describe nonuniform covariance statistics of background uctuations of investigated variable. Two speciic methods to be discussed are the detection and the estimation algorithms with(More)
Whether there is an independent component of MJO associated with El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is investigated using Xie-Arkin precipitation and NCEP reanalysis pentad data. The analysis tool employed here is the cyclostationary empirical orthogonal function (CSEOF) technique. As a result of the analysis, the evolution of the precipitation pattern for(More)
