Influence of climate shifts on decadal variations of surface solar radiation in Alaska


Chiacchio, Marc; Ewen, Tracy; Wild, Martin; Arabini, Elena (2010). Influence of climate shifts on decadal variations of surface solar radiation in Alaska. Journal of Geophysical Research, 115(D00D21):1-19.

Abstract

From past studies it has been known that the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) shifted toward a positive mode in 1976 and a new climate regime occurred that produced a warming of the mean annual and seasonal temperatures and associated increases in cloud cover and precipitation in the North Pacific including Alaska. In this study, this climate shift is examined with regard to the variations in surface solar radiation before and after 1976 during the period 1961–2005. The results show greatest changes occurring in the southeast region in winter with a significant rise of 1.67% yr
