Investigating the Impact of Reemerging Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies on the Winter Atmospheric

  title={Investigating the Impact of Reemerging Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies on the Winter Atmospheric},
  author={Christophe Cassou and Clara Deser and Michael A. Alexander},
Extratropical SSTs can be influenced by the “reemergence mechanism,” whereby thermal anomalies in the deep winter mixed layer persist at depth through summer and are then reentrained into the mixed layer in the following winter. The impact of reemergence in the North Atlantic Ocean (NAO) upon the climate system is investigated using an atmospheric general circulation model coupled to a mixed layer ocean/ thermodynamic sea ice model. The dominant pattern of thermal anomalies below the mixed… CONTINUE READING
