Record #172343:

The winter Arctic Oscillation and the timing of snowmelt in Europe / Kevin Schaefer, Scott A. Denning, Owen Leonard.

Title: The winter Arctic Oscillation and the timing of snowmelt in Europe / Kevin Schaefer, Scott A. Denning, Owen Leonard.
Author(s): Schaefer, Kevin.
Denning, Scott A.
Leonard, Owen.
Date: 2004.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (2004.), Vol. 31(22) (2004)
Abstract: Presents hypothesis attributing earlier spring snowmelt in northern hemisphere to increased temperatures and decreased precipitation due to a positive trend in the winter Arctic Oscillation (AO). Tests by modelling snowmelt with Simple Biosphere model, Version 2 (SiB2) and National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) reanalysis from 1958-2002. Simulated snowmelt dates are consistent with dates derived from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weekly snow charts. Winter AO exerts strongest influence on timing of snowmelt in northern Europe, with weaker influence in eastern Siberia and almost no influence in North America. Winter AO trend can statistically explain 20-70% of simulated snowmelt trends in northern Europe.
