Climatology of Cyclones/Anticyclones in Current and Future Climate Scenarios

PI: Tim Eichler
Institution: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Additional Investigators: Wayne Higgins
Abstract:
Analyses will be performed using cyclone/anticyclone tracking software which locates SLP minima/maxima. The objectives of the analyses are: 1) Document cyclone/anticyclone climatology relative to observed in current climate simulations to assess the ability of dynamical models to generate cyclones/anticyclones and 2) Evaluate changes in cyclone/anticyclone climatology (i.e. frequency/intensity) due to anthropogenic forcing. For the initial stages of the research, SLP from the GFDL cm2.1 runs (control, 2xCO2, 4XCO2) are desired (temporal resolution < 1 day (e.g. 3 or 6-hourly)) . In the later stages of the work, other diagnostics may be required in relation to storm structure.
