The ongoing changing climate is not only expressed in global warming but goes along with changes in regional climate, circulation patterns and their temporal variability and extremes.
The session calls for contributions that will characterize the mechanisms and feedbacks behind the most important climate phenomena and teleconnection patterns in the ocean, atmosphere and on land at all latitudes and their changes in the past and in future projections.
The session will also consider the influence of changing patterns on regional climate (mean, variability, extremes) in temperature, precipitation and other variables both for past, recent and projected climate change. Climate phenomena under consideration are the Monsoon systems, patterns of tropical convection, El-Nino-Southern Oscillation, Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, Northern Annular Modes and NAO, Southern Annular Mode, as well as regional climate patterns, and the evolution of tropical and extratropical cyclones.
