To perform an integrated statistical analysis of long climate data sets for the Arctic and subpolar North Atlantic
Mark Serreze, J. Overland (NOAA), and M. Miles (University of Colorado)
This study performs an analysis of long climate data sets, including meteorological and oceanographic measurements, sea ice observations and climate indices, such as the phase of different atmospheric teleconnection patterns. These are being used to better understand organized spatial patterns of variability and covariability in the ocean-ice atmosphere system. Efforts at University of Colorado have been focusing on understanding variability in the summer atmospheric circulation of the central Arctic Ocean and its link with sea ice conditions.
