    The modulation by the Atlantic multidecadal variability (AMV) of the dynamical climate response to a Pinatubo-like eruption is investigated for the boreal winter season based on a suite of large ensemble experiments using ...
  • Atmospheric processing of iron in mineral and combustion aerosols: development of an intermediate-complexity mechanism suitable for Earth system models 

    Scanza, Rachel A.; Hamilton, Douglas S.; Perez Garcia-Pando, Carlos; Buck, Clifton; Baker, Alex; Mahowald, Natalie M. (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2018-10-05)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Atmospheric processing of iron in dust and combustion aerosols is simulated using an intermediate-complexity soluble iron mechanism designed for Earth system models. The solubilization mechanism includes both a dependence ...
  • Investigating the Effects of Pacific Sea Surface Temperatures on the Wind Drought of 2015 Over the United States 

    Lledó, Llorenç; Bellprat, Omar; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J.; Soret, Albert (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2018-05-27)
    Article
    Accés obert
    During the first quarter of 2015 the United States experienced a widespread and extended episode of low surface wind speeds. This episode had a strong impact on wind power generation. Some wind farms did not generate enough ...
  • Multi-model skill assessment of seasonal temperature and precipitation forecasts over Europe 

    Mishra, Niti; Prodhomme, Chloé; Guemas, Virginie (Springer Verlag, 2018-08-31)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    There is now a wide range of forecasts and observations of seasonal climatic conditions that can be used across a range of application sectors, including hydrological risk forecasting, planning and management. As we rely ...
  • Origin of the warm eastern tropical Atlantic SST bias in a climate model 

    Exarchou, E.; Prodhomme, C.; Brodeau, L.; Guemas, V.; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco (Springer Verlag, 2018-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The substantial warm sea surface temperature bias in the eastern Tropical Atlantic reported in most CMIP5 climate simulations with various models, in particular along the coast of Namibia and Angola, remains an issue in ...
  • Estimation of the maximum annual number of North Atlantic tropical cyclones using climate models 

    Lavender, Sally L.; Walsh, Kevin J.E.; Caron, Louis-Philippe; King, Malcolm; Monkiewicz, Sam; Guishard, Mark; Zhang, Qiong; Hunt, Barrie (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018-08-22)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Using millennia-long climate model simulations, favorable environments for tropical cyclone formation are examined to determine whether the record number of tropical cyclones in the 2005 Atlantic season is close to the ...
  • Spatio‐temporal variability of daily precipitation concentration in Spain based on a high‐resolution gridded data set 

    Serrano-Notivoli, R.; Martín-Vide, J.; Saz, M.A.; Longares, L.A.; Begueria, S.; Sarricolea, P.; Meseguer-Ruiz, O.; Luis, M. de (Royal Meteorological Society, 2018-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    An analysis of the spatial and temporal variability of daily precipitation concentration (CI) in Spain was made based on a high‐resolution (5 × 5 km) daily gridded precipitation data set for the 1950–2012 period. For each ...
  • Importance of Late Fall ENSO Teleconnection in the Euro-Atlantic Sector 

    King, Martin P.; Herceg-Bulic, Ivana; Bladé, Ileana; Garcia-Serrano, Javier; Keenlyside, Noel; Kucharski, Fred; Li, Camille; Sobolowski, Stefan (American Meteorological Society, 2018-07-23)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Recent studies have indicated the importance of fall climate forcings and teleconnections in influencing the climate of the northern mid- to high latitudes. Here, we present some exploratory analyses using observational ...
  • Forecasting the climate response to volcanic eruptions: prediction skill related to stratospheric aerosol forcing 

    Ménégoz, Martin; Bilbao, Roberto; Bellprat, Omar; Guemas, Virginie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (IOP Publishing, 2018-06-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The last major volcanic eruptions, the Agung in 1963, El Chichon in 1982 and Pinatubo in 1991, were each associated with a cooling of the troposphere that has been observed over large continental areas and over the Western ...
  • Arctic sea-ice change tied to its mean state through thermodynamic processes 

    Massonnet, François; Vancoppenolle, Martin; Goosse, Hugues; Docquier, David; Fichefet, Thierry; Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, Edward (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-06-18)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    One of the clearest manifestations of ongoing global climate change is the dramatic retreat and thinning of the Arctic sea-ice cover. While all state-of-the-art climate models consistently reproduce the sign of these ...
  • Skilful forecasting of global fire activity using seasonal climate predictions 

    Turco, Marco; Jerez, Sonia; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J.; AghaKouchak, Amir; Llasat, Maria Carmen; Provenzale, Antonello (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-07-13)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Societal exposure to large fires has been increasing in recent years. Estimating the expected fire activity a few months in advance would allow reducing environmental and socio-economic impacts through short-term adaptation ...
  • Quantifying climate feedbacks in polar regions 

    Goosse, Hugues; Kay, Jennifer E.; Armour, Kyle C.; Bodas-Salcedo, Alejandro; Chepfer, Helene; Docquier, David; Jonko, Alexandra; Kushner, Paul J.; Lecomte, Olivier; Massonnet, François; Park, Hyo-Seok; Pithan, Felix; Svensson, Gunilla; Vancoppenolle, Martin (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-05-15)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The concept of feedback is key in assessing whether a perturbation to a system is amplified or damped by mechanisms internal to the system. In polar regions, climate dynamics are controlled by both radiative and non-radiative ...
