The Effects of Continental-Scale Snow Albedo 1 Anomalies on the Wintertime Arctic Oscillation

Abstract

The NCAR CAM3 GCM with prescribed, satellite-based snow 3 albedo (SA) is used to investigate the remote effects of snow cover on North-4 ern Hemisphere (NH) winter climate. A pair of 100 ensemble member ex-5 periments are integrated through the autumn-winter season, with prescribed 6 high and low SA over Eurasia (EA). Similar to other non-CAM GCM stud-7 ies… (More)
