Implications for Arctic ampli fi cation of changes in the strength of the water vapor feedback

  title={Implications for Arctic ampli fi cation of changes in the strength of the water vapor feedback},
  author={Debjani Ghatak and J. Miller},
[1] One of the major climatic changes apparent over the Arctic Ocean has been the amplified rate at which air temperature has been increasing relative to the global mean. There are multiple factors which play roles in this amplification, including changes in sea ice/albedo, atmospheric circulation, clouds, and water vapor. We investigate the positive feedback on temperature caused by increasing downward longwave radiation flux (DLF) associated with increasing atmospheric precipitable water (PW… CONTINUE READING
