      The Ocean-Atmosphere System. The oceans and the atmosphere are the two large reservoirs of water in the Earth's hydrologic cycle. The two systems are complexly linked to one another and are responsible for Earth's weather and climate. The oceans help to regulate temperature in the lower part of the atmosphere. Saildrone Atlantic Fleet Studies Tropical Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions Five saildrones were deployed from Barbados to join the EUREC4A/ATOMIC project, a massive international effort using air, space, surface, and sub-surface platforms to improve climate models and .

      Sea surface temperatures in the tropics have a major influence on the climate in the tropics and the adjacent continents. For example, they determine the . Energy Balance and the Role of the Tropics» Surface-Air Interactions. An integral part of the transport of energy within and from the tropics is the interaction between the surface and the atmosphere. Since the ocean occupies such a large area of the surface, ocean-atmosphere interactions are a dominant component of that energy.

Atmosphere-Ocean Interactions in Tropical Cyclones. The Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) project is a major international effort that instrumented the entire tropical Pacific Ocean with approximately 70 deep ocean development of the TAO array in was motivated by the El Niño event and ultimately designed for the study of year-to-year climate variations related to El Niño and the Southern Oscillation .

This book documents the historical evolution of concepts which describe the complex interactions of scales of motion which connect the surface, mixed, and cloud layers to the deeper atmosphere of the tropics. Thermodynamic and kinematic consequences of these transfers of energy are extended to the geochemical and living by: Observations of surface to atmosphere interactions in the tropics.

the authors have been active participants in many tropical field experiments. This book is a very personal view of the tropical boundary layer \u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\n schema:name\/a> \" Observations of surface to atmosphere interactions in the tropics\/span>\"@ en\/a.

Land–atmosphere interactions are integral in the regulation of these fluxes across multiple. For a detailed discussion the reader is referred to Philander (). The crucial aspect of large-scale ocean-atmosphere interactions is a circularity: sea surface temperatures strongly influence atmospheric conditions and are also determined by those atmospheric conditions, especially by the surface winds in the by: 3.

Interactions with the Atmosphere. Before radiation used for remote sensing reaches the Earth's surface it has to travel through some distance of the Earth's atmosphere.

Particles and gases in the atmosphere can affect the incoming light and radiation. while the tropics would have high concentrations of water vapour (i.e.

high humidity). / Observations: Atmosphere and surface. Climate Change the Physical Science Basis: Working Group I Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Vol. Cambridge University Press, pp.

This review discusses the land‐surface‐atmosphere interaction using observations from two North American field experiments (First International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project Field Experiment (FIFE) and Boreal Ecosystem Atmosphere Study (BOREAS)) and the application of research data to the improvement of land surface and boundary layer.

Sea-surface temperatures influence the intensity of the Hadley circulation, and the position of ITCZ generally corresponds to the zone where sea-surface temperatures are the highest. The chapter concentrates on phenomena resulting from atmosphere–ocean interaction in the tropics where the two fluid systems are most closely “coupled.”.

Indices of the tropical Atlantic decadal oscillation as a function of time: meridional wind speed (V in m s −1) averaged between 5°S and 5°N, north–south differences in sea level pressure (P in mb), zonal wind speed (U in m s −1), and sea surface temperature (T in °C) between zonal averages within 5°N–25°N and 5°S–25°-point running mean is applied to annual-mean.

However, although air-sea interactions in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans are much weaker than those in the Pacific, they contribute significantly to the variability in these two regions.

The role of these air-sea interactions is mainly that of an amplifier by which the ENSO-induced signals are enhanced in the ocean and atmosphere. Our results show how nonlinear ocean-atmosphere interaction is essential in combining these two effects to build different sea surface temperature structures, some of which are realistic.

They also provide some insight into observed and modelled tropical Pacific climate. Sulfur dioxide (SO 2) is one of the primary source gases for aerosols in the at low concentrations, its presence in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UT/LS) provides an important source for aerosol nucleation and growth, and SO 2 has been postulated to be important for the stratospheric sulfur budget.

To understand aerosol nucleation and global. Surface cooling caused by rare but intense near-inertial wave induced mixing in the tropical Atlantic. Nature Communications, ; 11 (1) DOI: /sx. The El Niño–Southern Oscillation, which originates in the tropical Pacific, affects the rest of the world's tropics by perturbing global atmospheric circulation.

Less appreciated than this influence is how the tropical Atlantic and Indian Oceans affect the Pacific. Cai et al. review what we know about these pantropical interactions, discuss possible ways of improving predictions of.

Observations comprise a continuous 60‐day run of data from mid‐October to mid‐Decembercovering the end of the dry season and the beginning of the wet season.

Mean hourly observations are calculated for the whole period; and for two 10‐day periods, one in the dry season and one at the start of the wet season. For more than 20 years, the PIRATA surface buoys have been providing valuable data for studies of ocean-atmosphere interaction, which were also used for this study.

"Indeed, the intensive mixing. However, there are relatively few non‐Argo sub‐surface observations in the open ocean outside of the Tropics (where there is a relatively high density of moored buoys).

The full suite of atmosphere observations assimilated in both experiments include satellite and insitu measurements of temperature, wind, humidity, pressure and direct.

Abstract. This chapter describes the key processes at the interface between the atmosphere and the solid or liquid surface of Earth. The energy-balance equation for the surface of Earth is described and each of its terms is evaluated, including net radiation, evaporative cooling, sensible cooling, and storage of heat in the surface.

Research Interest: My research centers on ocean-atmosphere interactions and their role in climate formation, variability, and change. The ocean's importance for climate is evident from the facts that most of solar radiation absorption occurs at the Earth surface and that the ocean occupies seventy percent of the Earth surface.

DOE PAGES Journal Article: Assessing impacts of PBL and surface layer schemes in simulating the surface–atmosphere interactions and precipitation over the tropical ocean using observations from AMIE/DYNAMO.The primary focus of this review is tropical-extratropical interactions and especially the issues involved in determining the response of the extratropical atmosphere to tropical forcing associated with sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies.

The review encompasses observations, empirical studies, theory and modeling of the extratropical teleconnections with .Cold surface water cools the air above it, which leads to increases in the surface air pressure.

Warm surface water adds heat and water vapor to the atmosphere, lowering the surface air pressure. These air-sea interactions result in tropical surface air pressure being highest in the _____ tropical Pacific.
