Convective Impact on Temperatures Observed near the Tropical Tropopause
Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences
Observed temperature trends and interannual variations near the tropical tropopause suggest that temperatures up to the cold point are controlled by the troposphere, but some models indicate otherwise. Here we extend previous investigations of thermal anomalies and heating profiles associated with tropical convective outbreak, by examining behavior near the tropopause. Observations show that active convective systems are locally associated with warm anomalies in the upper troposphere but colddoi:10.1175/1520-0469(2003)060<1847:cioton>2.0.co;2 fatcat:llkiixkflzgfjohg5po5hwhoaq
