Intra-El Niño variability of surface air temperature signals across western Canada

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study explores connections between El Niño characteristics and surface air temperature (SAT) in western Canada. Specifically, the study examines which, if any, of El Niño strength, type and/or position of atmospheric/oceanic forcing, and/or timing of the El Niño cycle, can help to account for the intra-El Niño SAT variation in the region, and how the importance of such characteritics may vary from one El Niño season to another and from one area to another. Results will further improve the understanding of extratropical climatic teleconnections, which may lead to improved climate forecasting tools during El Niño events
