Connections between climate sensitivity and large-scale extratropical dynamics
The response of the extratropical storm tracks to anthropogenic forcing is one of the most important but poorly understood aspects of climate change. The direct, thermodynamic effects of climate change are relatively well understood, but their two-way interactions with large-scale extratropical dynamics are extremely difficult to predict. There is thus continued need for a robust understanding of how this coupling evolves in space and time. The dry dynamical core represents one of the simplest possible numerical models for studying the response of the extratropical storm tracks to climate change. ...
