      AGU Journal highlights - 23 March 2005 Highlights, including authors and
      their institutions
      The following highlights summarize research papers in Geophysical
      Research Letters (GL). The papers related to these Highlights are
      printed in the next paper issue of the journal following their
      electronic publication.

      You may read the scientific abstract for any of these papers by going to
      http://www.agu.org/pubs/search_options.shtml and inserting into the
      search engine the portion of the doi (digital object
      identifier)following 10.1029/ (e.g., 2004GL987654). The doi is found at
      the end of each Highlight, below. To obtain the full text of the
      research paper, see Part II.

      2. Linking North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse gases

      An analysis using a dozen climate models suggests that the North
      Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) may intensify with further increases to
      greenhouse gas concentrations. Kuzmina et al. report on the Coupled
      Model Intercomparison Project, designed to investigate how the current
      generation of climate models reproduces the major features of the
      wintertime North Atlantic Oscillation and how the oscillation may have
      changed in response to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide. The North
      Atlantic Oscillation modulates the jet stream over the Northern
      Hemisphere, dominating climate and atmospheric conditions over the
      globe. The researchers explored speculation that changes in greenhouse
      gas concentrations since the 1960s may have affected the periodic
      oscillation, using the models to compare theoretical with actual events
      since that time. They observed trends in recent decades indicating that
      the North Atlantic Oscillation index has shifted along with the
      increasing carbon dioxide, providing evidence that they interpret as a
      possible link between the North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse gases.
