Variations in the Atlantic - Pacific circulation



Variations in the Atlantic - Pacific circulation



Climatic Change and Variability: A Southern Perspective A B Pittock et al, Editors: 185-190



Variations of tropical circulation and climate include such extreme atmospheric/hydrospheric regimes as the torrential rainfall on the Pacific coast of South America, the droughts of northeastern Brazil, and the droughts of the subsaharan Africa. Ship data from 1911-1972 and surface pressure charts from 1899-1972 were used for the study. Extreme weather conditions tend to come in sequences of several years that are either predominantly wet or dry.
