Are Sea Surface Temperature Indices the Right Proxy for 100-year Trends in AMOC? 17 November 2020

Are Sea Surface Temperature Indices the Right Proxy for 100-year Trends in AMOC?

Research supported by the Climate Variability & Predictability program suggests that a common proxy for understanding AMOC trends, sea surface temperature indices, are not the best choice at the centennial scale, opening the door for new indices to be developed.

How Will Climate Change Impact El Niño and La Niña?

The future of the El Niño Southern Oscillation, or ENSO, is the subject of a new book published by the American Geophysical Union. 

Revisiting the Great Salinity Anomaly of the 1970s 4 November 2020

Revisiting the Great Salinity Anomaly of the 1970s

Research supported by the Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program challenges long-standing beliefs on what led to the development of the 1970s Great Salinity Anomaly and resulting shutdown of the Labrador Sea deep convection. 

Subantarctic Stratification in Climate Models Controlled by Ocean Circulation 4 November 2020

Subantarctic Stratification in Climate Models Controlled by Ocean Circulation

Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP)-funded researchers find that a common Southern Ocean bias in CMIP5 climate models is due to errors in the simulated ocean circulation.
