Increased tropical Atlantic wind shear in model projections of global warming

  title={Increased tropical Atlantic wind shear in model projections of global warming},
  author={Gabriel A. Vecchi and Brian J. Soden},
[1] To help understand possible impacts of anthropogenic greenhouse warming on hurricane activity, we assess model-projected changes in large-scale environmental factors tied to variations in hurricane statistics. This study focuses on vertical wind shear (Vs) over the tropical Atlantic during hurricane season, the increase of which has been historically associated with diminished hurricane activity and intensity. A suite of state-of-the-art global climate model experiments is used to project… CONTINUE READING
