  • Enhanced warming over the global subtropical western boundary currents 

    Wu, Lixin; Cai, Wenju; Zhang, Liping; Nakamura, Hisashi; Timmermann, Axel; Joyce, Terrence M.; McPhaden, Michael J.; Alexander, Michael A.; Qiu, Bo; Visbeck, Martin; Chang, Ping; Giese, Benjamin (2011-11)
    Subtropical western boundary currents are warm, fast flowing currents that form on the western side of ocean basins. They carry warm tropical water to the mid-latitudes and vent large amounts of heat and moisture to the ...
  • ENSO and Pacific decadal variability in the Community Climate System Model Version 4 

    Deser, Clara; Phillips, Adam S.; Tomas, Robert A.; Okumura, Yuko M.; Alexander, Michael A.; Capotondi, Antonietta; Scott, James D.; Kwon, Young-Oh; Ohba, Masamichi (American Meteorological Society, 2012-04-15)
    This study presents an overview of the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon and Pacific decadal variability (PDV) simulated in a multicentury preindustrial control integration of the NCAR Community Climate System ...
  • ENSO’s impact on the gap wind regions of the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean 

    Alexander, Michael A.; Seo, Hyodae; Xie, Shang-Ping; Scott, James D. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-05-15)
    The recently released NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) is used to examine the response to ENSO in the northeast tropical Pacific Ocean (NETP) during 1979–2009. The normally cool Pacific sea surface temperatures ...
  • Influence of the meridional shifts of the Kuroshio and the Oyashio Extensions on the atmospheric circulation 

    Frankignoul, Claude; Sennechael, Nathalie; Kwon, Young-Oh; Alexander, Michael A. (American Meteorological Society, 2011-02-01)
    The meridional shifts of the Oyashio Extension (OE) and of the Kuroshio Extension (KE), as derived from high-resolution monthly sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies in 1982–2008 and historical temperature profiles in ...
  • Investigating the local atmospheric response to a realistic shift in the Oyashio Sea surface Temperature Front 

    Smirnov, Dimitry; Newman, Matthew; Alexander, Michael A.; Kwon, Young-Oh; Frankignoul, Claude (American Meteorological Society, 2015-02-01)
    The local atmospheric response to a realistic shift of the Oyashio Extension SST front in the western North Pacific is analyzed using a high-resolution (HR; 0.25°) version of the global Community Atmosphere Model, version ...
  • Role of the Gulf Stream and Kuroshio–Oyashio systems in large-scale atmosphere–ocean interaction : a review 

    Kwon, Young-Oh; Alexander, Michael A.; Bond, Nicholas A.; Frankignoul, Claude; Nakamura, Hisashi; Qiu, Bo; Thompson, LuAnne (American Meteorological Society, 2010-06-15)
    Ocean–atmosphere interaction over the Northern Hemisphere western boundary current (WBC) regions (i.e., the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio, Oyashio, and their extensions) is reviewed with an emphasis on their role in basin-scale ...
