Seasonally-dependent impact of easterly wind bursts on the development of El Niño events

Westerly wind bursts play an important role in the development of El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. However, the impact of easterly wind bursts (EWBs) on the development of ENSO is still unclear. In particular, a series of strong EWBs in the summer of 2014 aroused arguments about their importance in suppressing the potential warming in the summer. In this study, we...

Detection and attribution of upper-tropospheric warming over the tropical western Pacific

Both model and satellite observations suggest that the warming in the tropical upper troposphere is more pronounced than in the lower troposphere. This study describes the tropical upper-tropospheric-warming (UTW) in the ECMWF Reanalysis Interim dataset, and reveals radiative and non-radiative processes contributing to the long-term change in UTW. The maximum intensity of the UTW...

Role of Atlantic air–sea interaction in modulating the effect of Tibetan Plateau heating on the upstream climate over Afro-Eurasia–Atlantic regions

Previous studies have demonstrated that atmospheric diabatic heating over the Tibetan Plateau (TP) exerts significant influences on the “upstream” climate of the Atlantic-African-European sector in boreal summer. Using the NCAR Community Earth System Model, this study demonstrates that the TP-induced change in North Atlantic sea surface temperature (SST) including evident warming...

Inhibition of upper small intestinal mTOR lowers plasma glucose levels by inhibiting glucose production

Glucose homeostasis is partly controlled by the energy sensor mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) in the muscle and liver. However, whether mTOR in the small intestine affects glucose homeostasis in vivo remains unknown. Here, we first report that delivery of rapamycin or an adenovirus encoding the dominant negative acting mTOR-mutated protein into the upper small intestine is...

Tibetan Plateau heating as a driver of monsoon rainfall variability in Pakistan

Pakistan summer monsoon rainfall consists of a large portion of the local annual total rainfall, and in the recent monsoon seasons, prolonged periods of anomalous rainfall and excessive flooding have appeared in Pakistan. A full understanding of the monsoon rainfall variability is important for the sustainable development of the country. Based on multiple data analyses and the...

Albumin-Bilirubin Grade as a Novel Predictor of Survival in Advanced Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma

Aim. Child-Pugh (CP) grade has been used to assess liver function and postoperative outcomes in biliary tract neoplasms. The aim of this study was to preliminarily explore the prognostic significance of an alternative model of liver function, called albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) grade, in patients with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (EHC). Methods. A total of 109 advanced EHC...

Impacts of climate warming on maximum aviation payloads

The increasing importance of aviation activities in modern life coincides with a steady warming climate. However, the effect of climate warming on maximum aircraft carrying capacity or payload has been unclear. Here we clarify this issue using primary atmospheric parameters from 27 fully coupled climate models from the Coupled Model Inter-comparison Project 5 (CMIP5) archive...

Decadal evolution of the surface energy budget during the fast warming and global warming hiatus periods in the ERA-interim

The global-mean surface temperature has experienced a rapid warming from the 1980s to early-2000s but a muted warming since, referred to as the global warming hiatus in the literature. Decadal changes in deep ocean heat uptake are thought to primarily account for the rapid warming and subsequent slowdown. Here, we examine the role of ocean heat uptake in establishing the fast...

Influence of Latent Heating over the Asian and Western Pacific Monsoon Region on Sahel Summer Rainfall

There has been an interdecadal shift towards a less humid state in Sahel summer rainfall since the 1960s. The decreased Sahel summer rainfall was associated with enhanced summer latent heating over the South Asian and western Pacific summer monsoon region and anomalous zonal-vertical cell of the Asian summer monsoon circulation, indicating that the latent heating plays a...

A process-level attribution of the annual cycle of surface temperature over the Maritime Continent

The annual cycle of the surface temperature over the Maritime Continent (MC) is characterized by two periods of rapid warming in March–April and September–October, respectively, and a period of rapid cooling in June–July. Based upon an analysis of energy balance within individual atmosphere–surface columns, the seasonal variations of surface temperature in the MC are partitioned...

Multi-scale variation of the meridional movement of the western Pacific warm pool and its associated large-scale climate features

In this study, we investigated variation of the meridional movement of the western Pacific warm pool (WPWP). The variation was measured by the central latitude (Clat) of the WPWP on various time scales. Its relationships with global sea surface temperature (SST), precipitation, and atmospheric circulation were examined by applying several advanced statistical methods. First, the...

Long non-coding RNA and microRNA-675/let-7a mediates the protective effect of melatonin against early brain injury after subarachnoid hemorrhage via targeting TP53 and neural growth factor

The objective of this study was to identify the protective effect of melatonin (MT) against early brain injury (EBI) following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and explore the underlying molecular mechanism. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and luciferase assay were utilized to detect the effect of MT on H19 expression level, computation analysis and luciferase assay were...

Perspective on the northwestward shift of autumn tropical cyclogenesis locations over the western North Pacific from shifting ENSO

During the recent decades of satellite era, more tropical cyclogenesis locations (TCLs) were observed over the northwestern part of the western North Pacific (WNP), relative to the southeastern part, during the boreal autumn. This increase in TCLs over the northwestern WNP is largely attributed to the synergy of shifting El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the 1998 Pacific...

Seasonal dependence of the predictable low-level circulation patterns over the tropical Indo-Pacific domain

The seasonal dependence of the prediction skill of 850-hPa monthly zonal wind over the tropical Indo-Pacific domain is examined using the ensemble reforecasts for 1983–2010 from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis and Reforecast (CFSRR) project. According to a maximum signal-to-noise empirical orthogonal function analysis...
