Half-century seasonal relationships between the Southern Annular Mode and Antarctic temperatures

  title={Half-century seasonal relationships between the Southern Annular Mode and Antarctic temperatures},
  author={Gareth J Marshall},
Here we examine the relationship between the Southern Hemisphere (SH) Annular Mode (SAM) and Antarctic near-surface temperatures using data from Antarctic stations for 1957-2004. This near half-century period is significantly longer than analysed in previous studies. Furthermore, the four seasons are considered independently while the longer datasets allow the temporal stability of the relationship to be investigated. A general pattern of positive (negative) correlations between the strength of… CONTINUE READING
