Résumé :

The Arctic is the region where the most dramatic climate change is expected. There is increasing observational evidence that the Arctic winter climate is strongly controlled by filamentary intrusions of moist, warm air–akin to the atmospheric rivers of lower latitudes–which cross the entire basin. I will discuss how the statistical distribution of these intrusions is affected by large-scale atmospheric circulation, particularly midlatitude storm track activity and blocking events; how the intrusions affect surface temperature and sea ice concentration; and how they contribute to Arctic extreme events.
