The missing Northern European winter cooling response to Arctic sea ice loss

Article English OPEN
Screen, James A. (2017)

Reductions in Arctic sea ice may promote the negative phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO−). It has been argued that NAO-related variability can be used an as analogue to predict the effects of Arctic sea ice loss on mid-latitude weather. As NAO− events are ass... View more
