A period of warm winters in Western Greenland and the temperature see-saw between Western Greenland and Central Europe


  • Dr. F. Loewe


Particulars are given regarding the big rise of winter temperatures in Greenland and its more oceanic climate during the last fifteen years. Observations covering sixty years show a marked negative correlation of simultaneous temperatures between western Greenland and the regions around the Baltic Sea. This temperature see-saw can be explained by the simultaneous pressure anomalies over Iceland and the Norwegian Sea and the changes of the meridional pressure gradient over the northern Atlantic.
