Associations between stratospheric variability and tropospheric blocking

Abstract:

There is widely believed to be a link between stratospheric flow variability and stationary, persistent "blocking" weather systems, but the precise nature of this link has proved elusive. Using data from the ERA-40 Reanalysis and an atmospheric general circulation model (GCM) with a well-resolved stratosphere (HadGAM), it is shown that there are in fact several different highly significant associations, with blocking in different regions being related to different patterns of stratospheric va...
