The research on climate change in polar regions, especially on the role of polar in the global climate system, has gain unprecedented level of interest. It has been the key scientific issue of the International Polar Year program (IPY, 2007–2008). In this paper, we dealt with the debate upon the breakup time of the stratospheric polar vortex in boreal spring. An observational study of the relation between stratospheric polar vortex breakup and the extra-tropical circulation was performed. The… Expand
On the differences and climate impacts of early and late stratospheric polar vortex breakup
The stratospheric polar vortex breakup (SPVB) is an important phenomenon closely related to the seasonal transition of stratospheric circulation. In this paper, 62-year NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data wereExpand
Study of the Variability of Spring Breakup Dates and Arctic Stratospheric Polar Vortex Parameters from Simulation and Reanalysis Data
Five 50-year simulations for the 5th version of the climate model of the Marchuk Institute of Numerical Mathematics, Russian Academy of Science (INM RAS), are used to analyze the interannualExpand
The boreal spring stratospheric final warming and its interannual and interdecadal variability
Based on the daily NCEP/DOE reanalysis II data, dates of the boreal spring Stratospheric Final Warming (SFW) events during 1979–2010 are defined as the time when the zonal-mean zonal wind at theExpand
Vertical Structure of the Arctic Spring Transition in the Middle Atmosphere
In the middle atmosphere, spring transition is the time period where the zonal circulation reverses from westerly in winter to easterly in summer which has a strong impact on the vertical waveExpand
The effect of interactive ozone chemistry on weak and strong stratospheric polar vortex events
Abstract. Modeling and observational studies have reported effects of stratospheric ozone extremes on Northern Hemisphere spring climate. Recent work has further suggested that the coupling of ozoneExpand
Projected changes of stratospheric final warmings in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres by CMIP5/6 models
Using the historical, moderate emission scenario (RCP45/SSP245), and high emission scenario (RCP85/SSP585) experiments provided by the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phases 5 and 6 (CMIP5/6),Expand
Interseasonal Connections between the Timing of the Stratospheric Final Warming and Arctic Sea Ice
AbstractConnections across seasons in atmospheric circulation and sea ice have long been sought to advance seasonal prediction. This study presents a link between the springtime stratosphere and Ar...
