A recently-developed measure of local wave activity (LWA) has been shown to capture well cases of extreme weather events affecting the troposphere (Huang and Nakamura ). We wish to develop a method to objectively detect persistent extreme weather . ABSTRACT: This study presents year climatology of Southern Hemisphere (SH) blockings in the winter using daily hPa geopotential height data from NCEP–NCAR reanalysis. The variability of SH blocking events and their relationships with combined phases of El Nino/southern oscillation (ENSO) and the southern annular mode (SAM) are˜ by:
Wave breaking in the lower stratosphere tends to be more regional in scale (i.e., involving wave disturbances beyond just wave numbers 1 and 2).

In the summer high-latitude stratosphere, static sta-bility decreases poleward, contributing to the possibil-ity of P y 0 (Shine ; Piani and Norton ). Birner () found that spatial variations in static sta-bility can have a significant effect on the distribution of P y.
A comprehensive climatology of Northern Hemisphere blocking is described based on a PV–θ wave-breaking index at the latitude of the climatological storm track and using the yr ECMWF Re-Analysis (ERA) dataset.
The general characterization of blocking regions is in agreement with most other studies, though more detail is provided by: James R.

A strong midwinter warming occurred in the Southern Hemisphere (SH) stratosphere in September Based on experiences from the Northern Hemisphere (NH), this event can be defined as a major warming with a breakdown of the polar vortex in midwinter, which has never been detected so far in the SH since observations began at the earliest in the by: mixing in the surface mixed layer and consequently the transport of heat, momentum and freshwater.

Frequent wave breaking in the lower stratosphere in early winter appears to both shield the upper portion of the vortex from wave disturbances and reduce the net upward wave activity flux into the. Abstract. In addition to the occurrence of atmospheric blocking, the climatology of the characteristics of blocking events, including duration, intensity, and extension, in four seasons over the Northern Hemisphere was analyzed for the period –Cited by: The Northern Hemisphere summer heat waves included severe heat waves that impacted most of the United States, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, Hong Kong, North Africa and the European continent as a whole, along with parts of Canada, Russia, Indochina, South Korea and Japan during May, June, July, and August The first phase of the global heatwaves was caused by a moderate El Niño event Type: Multiple intense anticyclones, Heat waves.
The summer of was highly exceptional in the Northern Hemisphere (NH) (1 –4).Its remarkable feature was a persistent “blocked” circulation pattern over Europe (1 –4).Anomalous heat reigned for much of the summer over a large part of Europe, reaching the highest temperature anomalies in Switzerland, northwestern France, and southern by: 1.
Introduction  During winter, the extratropical stratospheric circulation is characterized by westerly winds around a cold pole, the so‐called stratospheric polar vortex. The vortex forms as the polar stratosphere cools after the autumn equinox; it becomes stronger in the middle of the winter; and it finally breaks down during spring with the establishment of the summer regime, which is Cited by: SSW events have also been shown to have an effect on mesospheric temperatures in the summer hemisphere as well as possible impacts on polar mesospheric clouds in the summer hemisphere though inter-hemispheric coupling (Karlsson et al.,Karlsson et al., ; Kornich and Becker, ).

They affect the middle atmosphere structure and general circulation profoundly [Andrews et al., ] and could also have significant impacts on weather in the troposphere [Baldwin and Dunkerton, ].During an SSW event, the zonal mean temperatures in the polar Cited by: show that wave packets characteristics over Northern Hemisphere exhibit a strong seasonal dependence, both in their spectral component and in their distribution and localization.
