Then I will elaborate on this and say a bit more about our recent workshop.
I’ll say just a word about Iris’ work on this.
Polar Jet Stream recent workshop.
Polar Jet Stream
Pacific Jet Stream
Pacific Jet Stream
Warm East Pacific: El Niño
or PDO+ phase
Cold East Pacific: La Niña
or PDO- phase
Southwest US droughtvariability: Coldvs warm Pacific
The impacts for the current negative PDO phase are projected to be 1.6 times as large as the impacts of the A1B Scenario on P-E during 2020-2040 when evaluated according to the GPCC dataset, and about equal to the impacts of the A1B Scenario when evaluated according to the CRU dataset.
This means that if future impacts of the PDO on precipitation are comparable to past impacts, the effect of the current negative PDO will at least double the expected impacts of global warming until 2030.
The projected precipitation impacts of the combination of a negative PDO phase with a positive AMO phase are about twice as large as the impacts of the A1B Scenario on P-E during 2020-2040 when evaluated according to the GPCC dataset, and about equal to the impacts of the A1B Scenario when evaluated according to the CRU dataset.
