    • El Niño teleconnection to the Euro-Mediterranean late-winter: the role of extratropical Pacific modulation 

      Benassi, Marianna; Conti, Giovanni; Gualdi, Silvio; Ruggieri, Paolo; Materia, Stefano; García Serrano, Javier; Palmeiro, Froila M.; Batté, Lauriane; Ardilouze, Constantin (Springer, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) represents the major driver of interannual climate variability at global scale. Observational and model-based studies have fostered a long-standing debate on the shape and intensity of ...
    • Precipitation response to extreme soil moisture conditions over the Mediterranean 

      Ardilouze, Constantin; Materia, Stefano; Batté, Lauriane; Benassi, Marianna; Prodhomme, Chloé (Springer Link, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      The intimate link between soil moisture and precipitation makes it a “chicken-and-egg situation” that challenges climate studies of the continental water cycle. This association is particularly acute over the Mediterranean, ...
    • Seasonal prediction of European summer heatwaves 

      Prodhomme, Chloé; Materia, Stefano; Ardilouze, Constantin; White, Rachel H.; Batté, Lauriane; Guemas, Virginie; Fragkoulidis, Georgios; García Serrano, Javier (Springer, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Under the influence of global warming, heatwaves are becoming a major threat in many parts of the world, affecting human health and mortality, food security, forest fires, biodiversity, energy consumption, as well as the ...
    • Summer temperature response to extreme soil water conditions in the Mediterranean transitional climate regime 

      Materia, Stefano; Ardilouze, Constantin; Prodhomme, Chloé; Donat, Markus; Benassi, Marianna; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; Peano, Daniele; Caron, Louis-Philippe; Ruggieri, Paolo; Gualdi, Silvio (Springer, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      Land surface and atmosphere are interlocked by the hydrological and energy cycles and the effects of soil water-air coupling can modulate near-surface temperatures. In this work, three paired experiments were designed to ...
