IMPACTS: Weather 2009


International Weather and Climate Events of 2009

Klaus E. Wolter, ESRL/Univ of Colorado-CIRES, Boulder, CO

This talk gives an overview of noteworthy large-scale weather and climate anomalies in 2009, with a discussion of the resultant seasonal temperature and precipitation anomalies around the Globe. Weather and climate events include drought- and heat waves, wildfire seasons, major tropical cyclones, extratropical storms, flooding rains, snow storms, as well as cold waves. Where possible, these are related to the changing state of ENSO, as well as to expected impacts due to anthropogenic climate change.
