  • [3] Linkages between the AMO, Sahel summer rainfall and Atlantic Hurricane activity during the 20th century were mainly based on statistical analyses of observed data. A previous modeling study [Vitart and Anderson, 2001] simulated the impact of interdecadal variability in Atlantic SST on Atlantic Hurricane activity. In this study, with both statistical analyses of observed data and carefully designed experiments using the GFDL CM2.1 climate model, we show that the AMO plays a major role in… CONTINUE READING
