Two coupled general circulation models, i.e., the Meteorological Research Institute (MRI) and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models, were chosen to examine changes in mixed layer depth (MLD) in the equatorial tropical Pacific and its relationship with ENSO under climate change projections. The control experiment used pre-industrial greenhouse gas concentrations whereas the 2 × CO2 experiment used doubled CO2 levels. In the control experiment, the MLD simulated in the MRI model was… 

Role of the ocean mixed layer processes in the response of the North Pacific winter SST and MLD to global warming in CGCMs

It is investigated how the changes of winter sea surface temperature (SST) and mixed layer depth (MLD) under climate change projections are predicted differently in the North Pacific depending on the

Change in strong Eastern Pacific El Niño events dynamics in the warming climate

While there is evidence that ENSO activity will increase in association with the increased vertical stratification due to global warming, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Here we investigate

Response of the Antarctic stratosphere to warm pool El Niño Events in the GEOS CCM

Abstract. The Goddard Earth Observing System Chemistry-Climate Model, Version 2 (GEOS V2 CCM) is used to investigate the response of the Antarctic stratosphere to (1) warm pool El Nino (WPEN) events

Seasonal mixed-layer dynamics in an eddy-resolving ocean circulation model

[1] Mean and seasonal mixed-layer depths (MLDs) derived from an eddy-resolving ocean general circulation model with a horizontal resolution of (1/10)° are validated with climatological observations.

Intercomparisons of High‐Resolution Global Ocean Analyses: Evaluation of A New Synthesis in Tropical Oceans

A new high-resolution global analysis product is constructed from a fully coupled surface wave-tide-circulation Ocean Model developed by the First Institute of Oceanography Coupled Ocean Model

Sensitivity of the atmospheric response to warm pool El Niño events to modeled SSTs and future climate forcings

Warm pool El Niño (WPEN) events are characterized by positive sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in the central equatorial Pacific. Under present‐day climate conditions, WPEN events generate

Seasonal Variability of The Mixed Layer Depth in The Sulawesi Sea

The Sulawesi Sea is a semi-enclosed basin located in the Indonesian Seas and considered as the one of location in the west route of Indonesian Throughflow (ITF). There is less attention on the mixed

Stronger Increase in the Frequency of Extreme Convective than Extreme Warm El Niño Events under Greenhouse Warming

Since 1979, three extreme El Niño events occurred, in 1982/83, 1997/98, and 2015/16, with pronounced impacts that disrupted global weather patterns, agriculture, fisheries, and ecosystems. Although

This study is the first to identify a robust El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal in the Antarctic



ENSO Amplitude Changes due to Climate Change Projections in Different Coupled Models

Abstract Four climate system models are chosen here for an analysis of ENSO amplitude changes in 4 × CO2 climate change projections. Despite the large changes in the tropical Pacific mean state, the

ENSO amplitude changes in climate change commitment to atmospheric CO2 doubling

Simulations from six climate system models are analyzed to investigate the ENSO amplitude changes in response to a transient increase of the atmospheric CO2. It is found that the ENSO amplitude
