New method gives first global picture of mutual predictability of atmosphere and ocean
Published in Science Daily 7 October 2019
University of Maryland (UMD) scientists have carried out a novel statistical analysis to determine for the first time a global picture of how the ocean helps predict the low-level atmosphere and vice versa. They observed ubiquitous influence of the ocean on the atmosphere in the extratropics, which has been difficult to demonstrate with dynamic models of atmospheric and oceanic circulation. The results are published today in the Journal of Climate, "Local atmosphere-ocean predictability: dynamical origins, lead times, and seasonality."
