A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 1, JANUARY 1994
items from J. Clim., 6(11), Nov. 1993:
Variations of the Thermohaline Circulation in a Coupled
Ocean-Atmosphere Model," T. Delworth (GFDL, POB 308,
Princeton NJ 08542), S. Manabe, R.J. Stouffer, J. Clim., 6(11),
1993-2011, Nov. 1993.
A fully coupled model shows irregular oscillations of the
North Atlantic thermohaline circulation with a 50-year time
"Structure and Seasonality of Interannual and
Interdecadal Variability of the Geopotential Height and
Temperature Fields in the Northern Hemisphere Troposphere,"
J.M. Wallace (Dept. Atmos. Sci., AK-40, Univ. Washington, Seattle
WA 98195), Y. Zhang, K.-H. Lau, 2063-2082. Empirical orthogonal
functions are used to study characteristics of variations related
to the Pacific/North American teleconnection pattern since 1946,
and their manifestation in seasonal temperature trends.
"Toward Understanding the Causes of Low Frequency
Variability: The Interannual Standard Deviation of Monthly Mean
700 mb Height," A.G. Barnston (Clim. Analysis Ctr.,
NMC/NWS/NOAA, W/NMC 51, WWB RM 604, Washington DC 20233), H.M.
van den Dool, 2083-2102. Presents some of the more interesting
characteristics of the 700 mb height over the 1950-1991 period
that are published in a separate atlas as a reference for
climate-related studies, and compares them to a 10-year model
Climate Variations Over the North Atlantic Ocean During Winter:
1900-1989," C. Deser (CIRES, Campus Box 449, Univ. Colorado,
Boulder CO 80309), M.L. Blackmon, J. Clim., 6(9),
1743-1753, Sep. 1993. Results are based on empirical orthogonal
analyses of SSTs, air temperature, wind, and sea level pressure.
Anomalies in the Western Arctic and Greenland-Iceland Sea and
Their Relation to an Interdecadal Climate Cycle," L.A. Mysak
(Ctr. Clim. & Global Change Res., McGill Univ., Montreal PQ
H3A 2K6, Can.), S.B. Power, Clim. Bull., 26(3),
147-176, Dec. 1992.
Large sea-ice extents and low salinities observed during the
late 1980s can be attributed to prior high runoff into the
Beaufort Sea. The spatial propagation of ice anomalies is
analyzed and related to Arctic and lower latitude interdecadal
