Hadley Cell Widening : Model Simulations versus Observations

  title={Hadley Cell Widening : Model Simulations versus Observations},
  author={Celeste M. Johanson},
Observations show that the Hadley cell has widened by about 28–58 since 1979. This widening and the concomitant poleward displacement of the subtropical dry zones may be accompanied by large-scale drying near 308N and 308S. Such drying poses a risk to inhabitants of these regions who are accustomed to established rainfall patterns. Simple and comprehensive general circulation models (GCMs) indicate that the Hadley cell may widen in response to global warming, warming of the west Pacific, or… CONTINUE READING
