Measurements of wind-wave growth and swell decay during the Joint North Sea Wave Project (JONSWAP)
"Wave spectra were measured along a profile extending 160 kilometers into the North Sea westward from Sylt for a period often weeks in 1968 and 1969. During the main experiment in July 1969, thirteenExpand

Potential impacts of a warming climate on water availability in snow-dominated regions
All currently available climate models predict a near-surface warming trend under the influence of rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In addition to the direct effects onExpand

Interdecadal modulation of ENSO teleconnections
Abstract Seasonal climate anomalies over North America exhibit rather large variability between years characterized by the same ENSO phase. This lack of consistency reduces potential statisticallyExpand

High-resolution palaeoclimatic records for the last millennium: interpretation, integration and comparison with General Circulation Model control-run temperatures
Palaeoclimatology provides our only means of assessing climatic variations before the beginning of instrumental records. The various proxy variables used, however, have a number of limitations whichExpand

Sea Surface Temperature, Surface Wind Divergence, and Convection over Tropical Oceans
Large-scale convection over the warm tropical oceans provides an important portion of the driving energy for the general circulation of the atmosphere. Analysis of regional associations between oceanExpand

Human-Induced Changes in the Hydrology of the Western United States
Observations have shown that the hydrological cycle of the western United States changed significantly over the last half of the 20th century. We present a regional, multivariable climate changeExpand

Computations and Parameterizations of the Nonlinear Energy Transfer in a Gravity-Wave Specturm. Part II: Parameterizations of the Nonlinear Energy Transfer for Application in Wave Models
Abstract Four different parameterizations of the nonlinear energy transfer Snl in a surface wave spectrum are in investigated. Two parameterizations are based on a relatively small number ofExpand

Detection of Anthropogenic Climate Change in the World's Oceans
Large-scale increases in the heat content of the world's oceans have been observed to occur over the last 45 years. The horizontal and temporal character of these changes has been closely replicatedExpand

Origins and Levels of Monthly and Seasonal Forecast Skill for United States Surface Air Temperatures Determined by Canonical Correlation Analysis
Abstract Statistical techniques have been used to study the ability of SLP, SST and a form of persistence to forecast cold/warm season air temperatures over the United States and to determine theExpand

Decadal climate variability over the North Pacific and North America: Dynamics and predictability
The dynamics and predictability of decadal climate variability over the North Pacific and North America are investigated by analyzing various observational datasets and the output of a state of theExpand
