    The South Pacific (SP) region exerts large control on the climate of the Southern Hemisphere at many times scales. This paper identifies the main modes of interannual sea surface temperature (SST) variability in the SP ...
  • How Skillful are the Multiannual Forecasts of Atlantic Hurricane Activity? 

    Caron, Louis-Philippe; Hermanson, Leon; Dobbin, Alison; Imbers, Jara; Lledó, Llorenç; Vecchi, Gabriel A. (American Meteorological Society, 2018-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The recent emergence of near-term climate prediction, wherein climate models are initialized with the contemporaneous state of the Earth system and integrated up to 10 years into the future, has prompted the development ...
  • Transforming climate model output to forecasts of wind power production: how much resolution is enough? 

    MacLeod, Dave; Torralba, Verónica; Davis, Melanie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Wiley, 2018-01)
    Article
