[1] This work investigates the internal variability of zonal-mean baroclinicity over the Southern Hemisphere midlatitudes. The first two leading modes describe a meridional baroclinicity shift and a sharpening/broadening of baroclinicity, with the shift becoming more dominant at low frequency. The lifecycles of the baroclinic anomalies, estimated by means of lagged regression analysis, are qualitatively different depending on the frequency range. At high frequency, the zonal-mean baroclinicity… CONTINUE READING
