Tropical atmospheric circulation changes under global warming

This PhD thesis consists of three scientific articles. In the first one the tropical sea level pressure (SLP) response under global warming is investigated in a multi-model ensemble (MMEns) of climate models from the 3rd phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP3) and in ERA Interim...

ENSO mechanisms and interactions in a hybrid coupled recharge oscillator...

The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) mode is the most important phenomenon of interannual climate variability. The phenomenon has its origin in the interactions of the atmosphere and the tropical Pacific Ocean but the teleconnections of ENSO reach far beyond the tropical Pacific. Although the understanding...

Dynamics of the coupled system troposhere/stratosphere in the extratopics

In this study the dynamics of the coupled troposphere/stratosphere system was investigated using the atmospheric circulation model MAECHAM5/ocean mixed layer coupled model. The focus was on the impact of the stratosphere on the troposphere. The January climatology of the model agrees well with...
