  • The pulsating nature of large-scale Saharan dust transport as a result of interplays between mid-latitude Rossby waves and the North African Dipole Intensity 

    Cuevas, E.; Gómez-Peláez, A.J.; Rodríguez, S.; Terradellas, E.; Basart, S.; García, R.D.; García, O.E.; Alonso-Pérez, S. (Elsevier, 2017-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    It was previously shown that during August the export of Saharan dust to the Atlantic was strongly affected by the difference of the 700-hPa geopotential height anomaly between the subtropics and the tropics over North ...

    The EURODELTA-Trends multi-model chemistry-transport experiment has been designed to facilitate a better understanding of the evolution of air pollution and its drivers for the period 1990–2010 in Europe. The main objective ...
  • Use of bias correction techniques to improve seasonal forecasts for reservoirs — A case-study in northwestern Mediterranean 

    Marcos, Raül; Llasat, Mª Carmen; Quintana-Seguí, Pere; Turco, Marco (Elsevier, 2018-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, we have compared different bias correction methodologies to assess whether they could be advantageous for improving the performance of a seasonal prediction model for volume anomalies in the Boadella reservoir ...

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Highlights • Aerosol scattering simulated under variable microphysical properties (visible range). • Sensitivity of scattering to microphysical properties depends on particle mean size. • Scattering spectral dependence ...
  • Multi-scale enhancement of climate prediction over land by increasing the model sensitivity to vegetation variability in EC-Earth 

    Alessandri, Andrea; Catalano, Franco; de Felice, Matteo; van der Hurk, Bart; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Boussetta, Souhail; Balsamo, Gianpaolo; Miller, Paul A. (Springer, 2017-08)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The EC-Earth earth system model has been recently developed to include the dynamics of vegetation. In its original formulation, vegetation variability is simply operated by the Leaf Area Index (LAI), which affects climate ...
  • Summer drought predictability over Europe: empirical versus dynamical forecasts 

    Turco, Marco; Ceglar, Andrej; Prodhomme, Chloé; Soret, Albert; Toreti, Andrea; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (IOP Publishing, 2017-07-27)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Seasonal climate forecasts could be an important planning tool for farmers, government and insurance companies that can lead to better and timely management of seasonal climate risks. However, climate seasonal forecasts ...
  • Revisiting the ENSO Teleconnection to the Tropical North Atlantic 

    García-Serrano, Javier; Cassou, Christophe; Douville, Hervé; Giannini, Alessandra; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (American Meteorological Society, 2017-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    One of the most robust remote impacts of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is the teleconnection to tropical North Atlantic (TNA) sea surface temperature (SST) in boreal spring. However, important questions still remain ...
  • Optimizing domain decomposition in an ocean model: the case of NEMO 

    Tintó, Oriol; Acosta, Mario; Castrillo, Miguel; Cortés, Ana; Sanchez, Alicia; Serradell, Kim; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Earth System Models are critical tools for the study of our climate and its future trends. These models are in constant evolution and their growing complexity entails an incrementing demand of the resources they require. ...
  • Seasonal Climate Prediction: A New Source of Information for the Management of Wind Energy Resources
