M Brown, L Gray

The 11-year period solar cycle in the sun’s output impacts the winter surface climate of Northern Europe and the Atlantic. This occurs through a chain of dynamical processes, illustrated below, that we are only only just starting to understand. Using the HadGEM model to conduct a series of sensitivity experiments, I aim to improve this understanding, and perhaps the predictability of N. Europe winters.
