Winter and Summer Northern Hemisphere Blocking in CMIP5 Models

Abstract:

The frequencies of atmospheric blocking in both winter and summer and the changes in them from the twentieth to the twenty-first centuries as simulated in 12 models from phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) are analyzed. The representative concentration pathway 8.5 (RCP8.5) high emission scenario runs are used to represent the twenty-first century. The analysis is based on the wavebreaking methodology of Pelly and Hoskins. It differs from the Tibaldi and Molteni index ...
