  1. Five-year research project in Japan on extreme weather variations in the stratosphere-troposphere coupled system • Shigeo Yoden • (Kyoto Univ., 1/17

  2. Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (S) Extreme Weather Variations in the Stratosphere –Troposphere Coupled System: Past, Present and Future FY2012 - 2016 PI : Shigeo Yoden(Kyoto Univ.) Co-I : K. Ishioka, M. Taguchi, R. Mizuta, H. Mukougawa, T. Enomoto, A. Kitoh, K. Kodera, Y. Naito and T. Hirooka Postdoctoral Fellow: E. Nishimoto and S. Noda 2/17

  3. Background • Stratospheric sudden warming (SSW) • a typical extreme weather event in the S-T coupled system • highly nonlinear global- scale dynamical phenomenon • prediction is a quite difficult problem Time evolution of NP Temp. [K] at 10 hPa 2009 70 K 5 days Mukougawa et al. (2012) NP C C Time evolution of the polar vortex during an SSW event (every 3 days)

  4. Vertical couplings between S and T, and between S and M • downward propagation of a signal of extreme weather event in the stratosphere • significant influence down to the surface weather and climate • upward influence of an SSW to the mesosphere is another interesting thing • weaker mean zonal wind brings more nonlinear interactions among multi-scale waves Tides, PWs, and GWs • (e.g., Baldwin and Dunkerton 2001)  Hirooka #1312 Just after the SSW in Feb. 2007, an extreme cold event took place over North America 4/17 Mukougawa et al. (2012)

  5. Multiple time-scale variations of S-T coupled system • large day-to-day, intra-seasonal, and inter-annual variations in the Northern Hemisphere winter • highly skewed (or bimodal) PDFin monthly mean Temp. 1990s J J A S O N D J F M A M 2000s J A S O N D J F M A M J PDF of monthly mean Temp. at NP MCM experiment for 15,200 years Nishizawa and Yoden (2005) Intra-seasonal and inter-annual variation of NP Temp.Noguchi and Yoden (2012) 5/17 220 240 260 280 [K]

  6. Purpose and strategy • We aim to understand the dynamical linkage among these internal and external variations of the T-S-M coupled system comprehensively • We aim to contribute for improving our ability of prediction of extreme weather events • We investigate the feature of these internal and external variations in the current climate by analysing the observational and forecast datasets • We make validations of climate models by paleoclimatesimulations and sensitivity studies • Based on these studies for the past and present climates, we assess the impact on the future climate of the S-T coupled system with projection uncertainty
