Wacky Weather Ahead

January 2000
Time International (South Pacific Edition);1/31/2000, Issue 4, p64
Reports that the world climate may be changing, making winters milder at their beginning and colder at their end, and summers more inclined to drought and hurricanes. Reasons for this as related to changes in the Pacific Decadal Oscillation long-term climate cycle; Satellite images which tend to support this theory.

    Through a box model of the subpolar North Atlantic, we examine the genesis and predictability of the Atlantic Multidecadal Variability (AMV), posited as a linear perturbation sustained by the stochastic atmosphere. Postulating a density-dependent thermohaline circulation (THC), the latter would...
