Impact of ENSO on European Climate

  title={Impact of ENSO on European Climate},
  author={Adam A. Scaife},
The El Niño – Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects many parts of the globe, particularly in the tropics where changes in rainfall and temperature due to the varying phase of ENSO are the single largest source of year-toyear change. Clear ENSO influences on the extratropics are found over North America and Australia but Atlantic links are much less clear. In this short paper we review some of the attempts to identify ENSO teleconnections to the Atlantic and Europe and unify some of the earlier… Expand

The influence of ENSO on winter North Atlantic climate
[1] Although the influence of the El Nino - Southern Oscillation on the extra-tropical climate is well established for the Pacific basin and North American regions, there is no clear consensus as toExpand
The role of the stratosphere in the European climate response to El Niño
Observational studies show a clear response in European climate to El Nino/Southern Oscillation in late winter. Simulations with an atmospheric general circulation model identify a long-distanceExpand
Nonstationary impact of ENSO on Euro‐Atlantic winter climate
[1] Previous studies have suggested a lack of robustness over the Euro-Atlantic sector in the extratropical teleconnection response to ENSO. We use a simple AGCM to show that during the 20 yearsExpand
Impact of the Stratosphere on the Winter Tropospheric Teleconnections between ENSO and the North Atlantic and European Region
Abstract The possible role of stratospheric variability on the tropospheric teleconnection between El Nino–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the North Atlantic and European (NAE) region is addressed byExpand
Extreme climate of the global troposphere and stratosphere in 1940–42 related to El Niño
It is concluded that the observed anomalies constitute a recurring extreme state of the global troposphere–stratosphere system in northern winter that is related to strong El Niño events. Expand
ENSO forcing of the Northern Hemisphere climate in a large ensemble of model simulations based on a very long SST record
The January–March (JFM) climate response of the Northern Hemisphere atmosphere to observed sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies for the period 1855–2002 is analysed from a 35-member ensemble madeExpand
A general circulation model simulation of El Nino effects in the extratropical northern hemisphere stratosphere
This paper examines the effects of imposed tropical Pacific sea surface temperature perturbations on the December-February mean circulation in the Northern Hemisphere stratosphere as simulated by theExpand
The influence of sea surface temperatures on the northern winter stratosphere : Ensemble simulations with the MAECHAM5 model
Abstract The role of interannual variations in sea surface temperatures (SSTs) on the Northern Hemisphere winter polar stratospheric circulation is addressed by means of an ensemble of nineExpand
Stratospheric Communication of El Niño Teleconnections to European Winter
The stratospheric role in the European winter surface climate response to El Nino–Southern Oscillation sea surface temperature forcing is investigated using an intermediate general circulation modelExpand
