Analysing the Boreal Summer Relationship Between Worldwide Sea-Surface Temperature and Atmospheric Variability

Conference paper


The ocean and the atmosphere can be viewed as two sub-systems of the earth’s environmental system. The ocean and atmosphere interact at the air-sea boundary. This chapter is oriented towards analysing the impact of the ocean on the atmosphere. The timescales analysed are from the seasonal to the multidecadal. Statistical analysis is playing an important role in advancing our knowledge of air-sea interaction and its influence on worldwide climate variability. So this chapter is particularly well-suited for illustrating an application of statistics in climatology.
