Influence of Atlantic sea surface temperatures on persistent drought in North America

  title={Influence of Atlantic sea surface temperatures on persistent drought in North America},
  author={Song Feng and Qi Hu and Robert J. Oglesby},
This study investigates the relationship between North Atlantic sea surface temperatures (SST) and persistent drought in North America using modern observations, proxy paleodata, and simulations from multiple climate models. The observational results show that persistent droughts in the Great Plains and the southwest North America are closely related to multidecadal variations of North Atlantic SST (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillations, AMO). During the AMO warm (cold) phases, most of North… CONTINUE READING
