Evidence of global warming impact on the evolution of the Hadley Circulation in ECMWF centennial reanalyses
Description: This study analyzes the evolution of the Hadley Circulation (HC) during the twentieth century in ERA-20CM (AMIP-experiment) and ERA-20C (reanalysis). These two recent ECMWF products provide the opportunity for a new analysis of the HC trends and of their uncertainties. Further, the effect of sea surface temperature forcing (including its uncertainty) and data assimilation are investigated. Also the ECMWF reanalysis ERA-Interim, for the period 1979-2010, is considered for a complementary analysis. [Source: Climate Dynamics]
