RESPONSE OF 2 ATMOSPHERIC GENERAL-CIRCULATION MODELS TO SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURE ANOMALIES IN THE TROPICAL EAST AND WEST PACIFIC

Abstract:
We present several atmospheric general circulation experiments which model the atmospheric response to SST anomalies in the tropical East and West Pacific. We have found that the extratropical response to a relatively small West Pacific anomaly can be stronger than, and qualitatively different from the response to a much larger East Pacific anomaly. These experiments suggest a possible explanation for the difference in mid-latitude response during the 1976-77 El Nino winter and the El Nino winters of 1972-73 and 1982-83.-from Authors
