• A 4.5 Year‐Long Record of Svalbard Water Vapor Isotopic Composition Documents Winter Air Mass Origin 

      Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      From May 2014 to September 2018, a laser spectrometer analyzer provided a 4.5 years continuous record of water vapor isotopic composition at Ny-Ålesund (8 m above sea level, a.s.l.), Svalbard. It corresponds to the longest ...
    • Impact of Snow Initialization in Subseasonal‐to‐Seasonal Winter Forecasts With the Norwegian Climate Prediction Model 

      Li, Fei; Orsolini, Yvan; Keenlyside, Noel; Shen, Mao-Lin; Counillon, Francois; Wang, Yiguo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Snow initialization has been previously investigated as a potential source of predictability atthe subseasonal‐to‐seasonal (S2S) timescale in winter and spring, through its local radiative,thermodynamical, and hydrological ...
    • Impacts of Greenland Block Location on Clouds and Surface Energy Fluxes over the Greenland Ice Sheet 

      Ward, Jamie; Flanner, Mark G.; Dunn-Sigouin, Etienne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Clouds and blocking activity have been implicated as causes of increased Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) melt in the 21st century. Although Greenland blocks (i.e., long-lasting, mostly stationary anticyclones) generally reduce ...
    • Present Temperature, Precipitation, and Rain‐on‐Snow Climate in Svalbard 

      Wickström, Siiri; Jonassen, Marius Opsanger; Cassano, John J.; Vihma, Timo Pekka (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The Svalbard Archipelago has undergone rapid warming in the recent decades leading to warmer and wetter winter conditions. This study relates the present (2013–2018) 2 m temperature, precipitation, and rain-on-snow (ROS) ...
    • The Role of the Stratosphere in Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction: 1. Predictability of the Stratosphere 

      Domeisen, Daniela; Butler, Amy; Charlton-Perez, Andrew; Ayarzaguena, Blanca; Baldwin, Mark; Dunn-Sigouin, Etienne; Furtado, Jason; Garfinkel, Chaim; Hitchcock, Peter; Karpechko, Alexey; Kim, Hera; Knight, Jeff; Lang, Andrea; Lim, Eun-Pa; Marshall, Andrew; Roff, Greg; Schwartz, Chen; Simpson, Isla; Son, Seok-Woo; Taguchi, Masakazu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-18)
      The stratosphere has been identified as an important source of predictability for a range of processes on subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) time scales. Knowledge about S2S predictability within the stratosphere is however ...
    • The Role of the Stratosphere in Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction: 2. Predictability Arising From Stratosphere-Troposphere Coupling 

      Domeisen, Daniela; Butler, Amy; Charlton-Perez, Andrew; Ayarzaguena, Blanca; Baldwin, Mark; Dunn-Sigouin, Etienne; Furtado, Jason; Garfinkel, Chaim; Hitchcock, Peter; Karpechko, Alexey; Kim, Hera; Knight, Jeff; Lang, Andrea; Lim, Eun-Pa; Marshall, Andrew; Roff, Greg; Schwartz, Chen; Simpson, Isla; Son, Seok-Woo; Taguchi, Masakazu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The stratosphere can have a significant impact on winter surface weather on subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) timescales. This study evaluates the ability of current operational S2S prediction systems to capture two important ...
