Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93dec99

"GCM Response of Northern Winter Stationary Waves and Storm Tracks to Increasing Amounts of Carbon Dioxide," D.B. Stephenson (Météo-France CNRM/UDC, 42 Ave. G. Coriolis, 31057 Toulouse, France), I.M. Held, J. Clim., 6(10), 1859-1870, Oct. 1993.

Experiments with the GFDL coupled ocean-atmosphere model show that the Atlantic storm track weakens with increasing CO2, while the Pacific storm track changes little.

Item #d93dec100

"Historical Variations in Weather Disasters: Implications for Climate Change," S.A. Changnon (Illinois Global Clim. Change Prog., Illinois State Water Surv., Champaign IL 61820), World Resour. Rev., 5(3), Sep. 1993.

Studied historical variations in 146 major storms during 1950-1990 to describe their temporal characteristics and possible relationship to climate changes. Results suggest that a warmer regime over North America would be associated with a greater incidence of major storms in the U.S.

Item #d93dec101

"Tropical Cyclone Frequencies Inferred from Gray's Yearly Genesis Parameter: Validation of GCM Tropical Climates," B.F. Ryan (CSIRO, Atmos. Res., Mordialloc, Vic. 3195, Australia), I.G. Watterson, J.L. Evans, Geophys. Res. Lett., 19(18), 1831-1834, Sep. 23 1992. (See Global Climate Change Digest, Feb. 1993.)

Item #d93dec102

"Effect of Global Climatic Changes on the Cyclonic Activity in the Atmosphere," I.I. Mokhov (Inst. Atmos. Phys., USSR Acad. Sci., Moscow V-71, Russ.), O.I. Mokhov et al., Izvestiya, Atmos. Ocean. Phys., 28(1), 7-18, 1992. (English Ed. of Aug. 1992.)

Estimates expected cyclogenesis changes due to a change atmospheric temperature on the basis of empirical data in interannual variability (1962-1986), and evolution during a year.

Item #d93dec103

"On Trends of Atmospheric Cyclogenetic Activity under Global Climate Changes," I.I. Mokhov (address immed. above), O.I. Mokhov et al, Izv. Akad. Nauk SSSR Fiz. Atmos. I Okeana, 28(1), 11-26, Jan. 1992. In Russian.

Examines the generation of cyclones and anticyclones at different latitudes and over ocean and land, and compares results to model calculations. Obtained model expressions for cyclogenetic activity, number of eddies, and meridional eddy transfer of heat and water vapor.
