Tropical-extratropical teleconnections and atmospheric drivers of European drought events

Abstract:

Atmospheric dynamics are important in tropical-extratropical teleconnections. Using maximum covariance analysis (MCA), we investigate the leading modes of covariability between the tropical outgoing longwave radiation and the extratropical geopotential height. Using observed data, the leading mode of covariability on the seasonal timescale is associated with the El-Ni~no Southern Oscillation. Using a Met Office climate model (GC3) control run, although the leading tropical mode is st...
