Regional and Global Impacts of Land Cover Change and Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies

  title={Regional and Global Impacts of Land Cover Change and Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies},
  author={Kirsten L Findell and Andrew J. Pitman and Matthew H. England and Philip J. Pegion},
The atmospheric and land components of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory’s (GFDL’s) climate model CM2.1 is used with climatological sea surface temperatures (SSTs) to investigate the relative climatic impacts of historical anthropogenic land cover change (LCC) and realistic SST anomalies. The SST forcing anomalies used are analogous to signals induced by an El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), a North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), and the background global warming trend. Coherent areas of… CONTINUE READING
