Variability of the North Atlantic summer storm track: mechanisms and impacts on European climate

Article English OPEN
Dong, Buwen; Sutton, Rowan T.; Woollings, Tim; Hodges, Kevin;

The summertime variability of the extratropical storm track over the Atlantic sector and its links to European climate have been analysed for the period 1948–2011 using observations and reanalyses. The main results are as follows. (1) The dominant mode of the summer sto... View more
