POLAR2018 Session: Tropical-Polar Teleconnections and their Climate Impacts
The abstract deadline for Polar 2018 (15-26 Jun, Davos) is approaching (Nov 1) and we would like to encourage you to submit to our session AC-5 on Tropical-Polar Teleconnections and their Climate impacts.
This session aims to provide a setting to foster discussion on the tropics-pole teleconnections, in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, as well as how the Polar Regions feedback to lower latitudes. Contributions focusing on the tropical
forcing of recent Arctic and Antarctic changes (and vice versa), teleconnections, and the underlying mechanisms are especially welcome. Studies of processes and patterns span topics such as the role of atmospheric jets, the Hadley and Ferrel cells, the Antarctic
Dipole, the NAO, the Southern Annular Mode, the polar vortex, ENSO, Indian Ocean dipole, ITCZ, or MJO dynamics. Studies investigating the role of the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation and Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation in polar climate variability are also
relevant to this session.
