Presentation Transcript

PART I: warm SST biases off the western coasts of continents

  • better SSTs are important due to remote effects, particularly on tropical precipitation (ITCZ)

  • improved SWNET and winds can reduce these SST biases significantly

PART II: phase of the seasonal cycle of SST in the eastern Equatorial Pacific

  • properly phased winds produce the observed phase in SST

MODEL SSTs OR CERTAIN FORCING FIELDS ARE MODIFIED IN SPECIFIED REGIONS

LEVITUS SST, GISS (1984-2000) SWNET AND LWDN, QSCAT (2000-01) WINDS

10-YEAR COUPLED INTEGRATIONS WITH LEVITUS INITIAL CONDITIONS
