What does the seasonal cycle tell us about the atmospheric circulation response to global warming?
Room 811 AOSS, April 4, 2016, 3:30 PM
The atmospheric circulation exhibits large seasonal changes between winter and summer that reflect the growth of the Monsoon. Here we exploit similarities between the present-day seasonal circulation changes and the projected circulation response to increased carbon dioxide (both are examples of direct radiative forcing) to understand future regional summertime circulation changes.
