  • Atmospheric Circulation Response to Short-Term Arctic Warming in an Idealized Model 

    Hell, Momme; Schneider, Tapio; Li, Camille (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Recent Arctic sea ice loss in fall has been posited to drive midlatitude circulation changes into winter and even spring. Past work has shown that sea ice loss can indeed trigger a weakening of the stratospheric polar ...
