Causes of interannual variability in the sea-ice cover of the eastern Bering Sea

Auteur :
NIEBAUER, H. J.

Description :
Interannual variability in air temperatures, ice cover, and surface winds in the Bering Sea generally are in phase with each other, whereas sea-surface temperatures (SST) tend to lag these variables by 1-3 months. These Bering Sea time-series are significantly correlated with the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) time-series (an indicator of ENSO events) when the Bering sea data are lagged behind the SOI for up to 18 months. The correlations suggest that warming in the Bering Sea follows negative anomalies in the SOI (i.e., El Nino events). Cooling in the Bering Sea tends to follow positive anomalies (i.e., precursors of El Ninos) in the SOI.
