About this book

Climate variability in different ocean basins can impact one another, for instance the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in the Pacific Ocean has remote effects on other tropical oceans around the world, which in turn modulate ENSO. With chapters by eminent researchers, Interacting Climates of Ocean Basins provides a comprehensive review on how interactions among the climates in different ocean basins are key contributors to global climate variability. It discusses how interbasin interactions are mediated by oceanic and atmospheric bridges and explains exciting new possibilities for enhancing climate prediction globally. The first part of Interacting Climates of Ocean Basins covers essential theory and introduces the basic mechanisms for remote connection and local amplification. The second presents outstanding examples. The latter part discusses applications to cases of societal interest such as impacts on monsoon systems and expectations after climate change. This comprehensive reference is a useful resource for graduate students and researchers in the atmospheric and ocean sciences.

Biography

Carlos R. Mechoso is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the Department of Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, and has been appointed 'Professor Honorifico' by Universidad Complutense, Madrid. He is author of more than 200 scientific publications, including pioneering contributions on numerical modelling of the coupled atmosphere-ocean system. Much of his research has focused on the El Niño/Southern Oscillation and its impacts. He has chaired international research programs on different aspects of the climate of the Americas, and is a fellow of the American and Royal Meteorological Societies. For this book, he assembled an international team of researchers working on a major topic of current research.
