  title = {{Hadley circulation changes under global warming conditions indicated by coupled climate models}},
  journal = {Tellus Series A},
  year = 2008,
  month = oct,
  volume = 60,
  pages = {863-884},
  abstract = {{We use the mean meridional tropical circulation of the Atmospheric Ocean
Coupled General Circulation Models (AOGCM) to diagnose and quantify the
modifications of the mean meridional circulation of the atmosphere under
global warming conditions. The AOGCMs generally show a weakening of the
Hadley circulation for the winter cell in both hemispheres, accompanied
by a poleward extension of the Hadley circulation area. The conditions
explaining these modifications are analysed using detailed outputs from
IPSL-CM4. The AOGCM IPSL-CM4 shows changes, under CO$_{2}$
doubling, that are in accordance with the other models, for austral
winter. On the other hand, for boreal winter, the winter cell shows
little change in intensity and in extension. The poleward shift of the
Southern Hemisphere winter Hadley cell corresponds to changes in the
transient eddies, whereas the increase of the dry static stability is
mainly responsible for the mean weakening of the cell. For boreal
winter, a strong shrinking of the ascending branch area, and an increase
of the latent heating, is found to cancel the weakening of the
circulation due to dry static stability increase.

  abstract = {{We investigate the respective roles of large-scale transport and
convection in determining the water vapor maximum at 100 hPa in the
Asian monsoon region. The study uses backward trajectories with ECMWF
ERA-Interim heating rates. It includes simple microphysics with
supersaturation and takes into account convective sources based on CLAUS
data with a simple parameterization of overshoots. A good agreement
between reconstructed water vapor and observations is obtained over
Asia. It is found that parcels belonging to the water vapor maximum have
been first lifted by convection over the Bay of Bengal and the Sea of
China and then transported through the tropical tropopause layer (TTL)
via the monsoon anticyclonic circulation towards North-West India, where
they are eventually dehydrated, avoiding the coldest temperatures of the
TTL. Convective moistening accounts for about 0.3 ppmv in the Asian
monsoon region and overshoots do not have a significant impact on the
water vapor budget.

  month = sep,
  volume = 340,
  pages = {584-590},
  abstract = {{The successive reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) illustrate an apparent contradiction. On the one hand, the large
scale climatic change in response to the increase of greenhouse gases is
structured following patterns which have remained surprisingly stable
throughout the development of climate models. Already in the 1980s model
simulations of climate change were characterized by a larger warming in
polar areas and over the continents, and a tendency for precipitations
to accentuate existing contrasts, with a drier climate in semiarid
regions and more precipitations at mid-latitudes or near the Equator. On
the other hand, models have made little progress in predicting more
unanimously and more reliably the global amplitude of climate changes
and their geographical distributions. This lack of progress is certainly
linked with the role of the atmospheric dynamics in shaping up certain
aspects of climate response, either small scales which affect
atmospheric stratification, or synoptic scales, whose inherent
complexity and nonlinear interactions also limit the possibility of more
accurate regional predictions.

  journal = {Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics},
  year = 2008,
  month = may,
  volume = 15,
  pages = {365-378},
  abstract = {{Extreme Value Theory (EVT) is a useful tool to describe the statistical
properties of extreme events. Its underlying assumptions include some
form of temporal stationarity in the data. Previous studies have been
able to treat long-term trends in datasets, to obtain the time
dependence of EVT parameters in a parametric form. Since there is also a
dependence of surface temperature and precipitation to weather patterns
obtained from pressure data, we determine the EVT parameters of those
meteorological variables over France conditional to the occurrence of
North Atlantic weather patterns in the summer. We use a clustering
algorithm on geopotential height data over the North Atlantic to obtain
those patterns. This approach refines the straightforward application of
EVT on climate data by allowing us to assess the role of atmospheric
variability on temperature and precipitation extreme parameters. This
study also investigates the statistical robustness of this relation. Our
results show how weather regimes can modulate the different behavior of
mean climate variables and their extremes. Such a modulation can be very
different for the mean and extreme precipitation.
