Scope:

The Arctic climate system has experienced many drastic changes during recent decades, such as its average surface air temperature increasing at around twice the global average rate, and a large decline in sea ice cover. At the same time, an increase in frequency of climate and weather extreme occurrences has also been observed. It has therefore been hypothesized that changes in mid-latitude atmospheric circulation and weather patterns may be attributable to Arctic climate change. Pronounced scientific controversy in testing this hypothesis, along with important socio-economic implications of a possible Arctic-Eurasia climate linkage, makes this one of the most timely and attractive scientific topics in climate research.
 
This special issue will showcase recent progresses in our understanding of the coupling between Arctic climate change and Eurasian mid-latitude climate and weather, including extremes. The compilation of the research papers in this special issue is expected to fill key scientific gaps and hence contribute to a more thorough understanding of the problem. Submissions in, but not limited to, the following research areas, are invited:
 
-Observational and statistical evidence of changes in Eurasian weather and climate, as well as occurrence of extremes, in conjunction with changes in Arctic climate;
 
-Detection and attribution of linkages between Arctic climate change and Eurasian midlatitude climate and weather based on observations and numerical model experiments;
 
-Evaluation of uncertainties and their potential impacts on Arctic-Eurasia linkages arising from the use of relatively short observational records and caused by model deficiencies.
 

Important dates:

Manuscript submission deadline: November 30, 2016.
 
Estimated publication time: Late summer or early fall 2017.
