  Information - CL10 Regional and Global Climate Impact of the Atlantic Ocean Variability (co-listed in OS)

Event Information
The Atlantic Ocean Variability, in particular the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), has been shown to play an important role in many prominent multidecadal regional climate fluctuations, such as North American and European summer climate, Sahel rainfall, North East Brazilian rainfall, rainfall and river flows over the US, and the Atlantic Hurricane activity. Recent studies suggest that the AMO has remote impact on Indian rainfall, Pacific Decadal Oscillation, as well as global scale impact on northern hemispheric mean surface temperature variability. The AMO is also related to multidecadal modulation of ENSO variability.

In this session we welcome papers on statistical analysis or modelling of the impacts of the Atlantic Ocean Variability on regional or global scale climate. Of particular interest are studies on the coherent link between the AMO and other climate variability. Studies on the impact of other modes of Atlantic Ocean Variability are also welcome. Modeling studies or paleo observations on the regional and global teleconnections with the Atlantic ocean variations are also solicited.
