Northern Hemisphere Winter Atmospheric Transient Eddy Heat Fluxes and the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio – Oyashio Extension Variability

  title={Northern Hemisphere Winter Atmospheric Transient Eddy Heat Fluxes and the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio – Oyashio Extension Variability},
  author={Young and O Kwon and TERRENCE and M.. and Joyce},
Spatial and temporal covariability between the atmospheric transient eddy heat fluxes (i.e., hy 0T 0i and hy 0q0i) in theNorthernHemisphere winter (January–March) and the paths of theGulf Stream (GS), Kuroshio Extension (KE), and Oyashio Extension (OE) are examined based on an atmospheric reanalyses and ocean observations for 1979–2009. For the climatological winter mean, the northward heat fluxes by the synoptic (2–8 days) transient eddies exhibit canonical storm tracks with their maxima… CONTINUE READING
