Please consider submitting an abstract to a special session that we are organizing at the AGU Fall Meeting. The session is numbered GC005, and is titled "Changes in the Hadley Circulation with Global Warming: Impacts on Climates of Arid/Semi-Arid Zones".

Please consider submitting an abstract to a special session that we are organizing at the AGU Fall Meeting. The session is numbered GC005, and is titled "Changes in the Hadley Circulation with Global Warming: Impacts on Climates of Arid/Semi-Arid Zones". It deals with the following topic:

Increasing drought in subtropical regions, including a 3% increase in land area experiencing arid climates in the past few decades, suggests that global warming may be modifying the Hadley Circulation (HC). Changes in the intensity of major heat sources in the tropics may change teleconnection patterns, including displacements of the mid-latitude storm tracks. This session seeks presentations concerning observed and projected aridification of subtropical margins and changes in the zonal averaged and regional HC, changes in mechanisms of HC expansion/strengthening of the arid/semiarid subtropics, and HC-mediated sensitivities of precipitation to greenhouse gas forcing at multiple time scales.

The deadline for abstract submission is August 8.
