The South Atlantic Subtropical Anticyclone (SASA) is the main feature of the atmospheric circulation over the South Atlantic Ocean, and its study is of great importance to explain many characteristics of the Brazilian weather and climate. Therefore, this study aims to present (1) a review of the literature on SASA including the drivers of the semi-permanent anticyclones and (2) the main features of the SASA in the future climate obtained through the projections of three global climate models (HadGEM2-ES, GFDL-ESM2M, and MPI-ESM-MR), from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5), using the Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5 (RCP8.5) scenario. SASA is zonally wider in winter and retracted to the east in summer, when it presents a more circular format. These features of the SASA in the present climate (1979–2005) are well represented by the three global climate models, which also project this same SASA seasonal pattern for the future climate (2065–2095). Considering the projections, they indicate a slightly poleward expansion of the SASA, which is associated with the widening of the Hadley cell. At the SASA core, the pressure can be similar or slightly more intense than the present climate.

Resumo Este estudo avalia a destreza de dois modelos climáticos globais (CPTEC e CFSv2) e de um modelo climático regional (RegCM4) em prever o clima sazonal em diferentes regiões do Brasil. O RegCM4 foi dirigido tanto com as saídas do sistema CFSv2 quanto do modelo do CPTEC. Também foram utilizadas duas versões do RegCM: a 4.3 e a 4.5. O RegCM4.3 foi dirigido por seis membros do CFSv2, enquanto o RegCM4.5 foi dirigido por um membro do modelo global do CPTEC. Todas as previsões iniciaram cerca de dois meses antes do trimestre a ser previsto e ao todo foram realizadas 94 simulações com o modelo regional. De forma geral, o RegCM4 adiciona valor às previsões dos modelos climáticos globais, principalmente, quando é aninhado às saídas do modelo do CPTEC. Quando o RegCM4.5 é dirigido por esse modelo global e é utilizada a parametrização de convecção cumulus de Emanuel há uma boa performance do modelo regional na previsão da precipitação e temperatura do ar em quase todo o Brasil.

Resumo Em janeiro de 1989, a estação meteorológica convencional de Rio Grande, RS, pertencente ao Instituto Nacional de Meteorologia, mudou-se da área central da cidade para o campus da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande. Com os dados dessa estação, no início da década de 2000, foi publicado um livro com as Normais Climatológicas Provisórias (NCP) de Rio Grande, no período de 1991 a 2000, seguindo as normas da Organização Meteorológica Mundial (OMM). Passada mais de uma década dessa publicação, foi possível atualizar esse estudo considerando o período de 1991 a 2010. Portanto, apresenta-se um roteiro para controle de qualidade de dados de estações meteorológicas convencionais de superfície e as NCP de 1991 a 2010 de Rio Grande, bem como uma comparação entre as NCP das décadas 1991-2000 e 2001-2010. Como foi identificada não-homogeneidade nas séries temporais de umidade relativa e intensidade do vento, as NCP não foram computadas para essas variáveis. Rio Grande é uma cidade com pouca variabilidade mensal de precipitação, possui verão quente e inverno frio e, de acordo com a classificação climática de Köppen-Geiger, o clima é temperado sempre úmido e com verão quente (Cfa) e, pela classificação de Strahler, é subtropical úmido.

Simple Summary Abstract One of the most important anthropogenic influences on climate is land use change (LUC). In particular, the Amazon (AMZ) basin is a highly vulnerable area to climate change due to substantial modifications of the hydroclimatology of the region expected as a result of LUC. However, both the magnitude of these changes and the physical process underlying this scenario are still uncertain. This work aims to analyze the simulated Amazon deforestation and its impacts on local mean climate. We used the Common Land Model (CLM) version 4.5 coupled with the Regional Climate Model (RegCM4) over the Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX) South America domain. We performed one simulation with the RegCM4 default land cover map (CTRL) and one simulation under a scenario of deforestation (LUC), i.e., replacing broadleaf evergreen trees with C3 grass over the Amazon basin. Both simulations were driven by ERA Interim reanalysis from 1979 to 2009. The climate change signal due to AMZ deforestation was evaluated by comparing the climatology of CTRL with LUC. Concerning the temperature, the deforested areas are about 2 °C warmer compared to the CTRL experiment, which contributes to decrease the surface pressure. Higher air temperature is associated with a decrease of the latent heat flux and an increase of the sensible heat flux over the deforested areas. AMZ deforestation induces a dipole pattern response in the precipitation over the region: a reduction over the west (about 7.9%) and an increase over the east (about 8.3%). Analyzing the water balance in the atmospheric column over the AMZ basin, the results show that under the deforestation scenario the land surface processes play an important role and drive the precipitation in the western AMZ; on the other hand, on the east side, the large scale circulation drives the precipitation change signal. Dipole patterns over scenarios of deforestation in the Amazon was also found by other authors, but the precipitation decrease on the west side was never fully explained. Using budget equations, this work highlights the physical processes that control the climate in the Amazon basin under a deforestation scenario.

The purpose of this study is to analyze the Amazon (AMZ) deforestation impact on South America (SA) climate. Hence, two simulations with RegCM4, from 1979 to 2009, were carried out: one using a default land cover map (CTRL ) and the other one using deforestation scenario (LUC), i.e., all broadleaf evergreen trees tropical was changed to C3 grass. RegCM4 was integrated at a horizontal grid spacing of about 50 km and considering 18 sigma-pressure vertical levels for SA CORDEX domain. The lateral and boundary conditions for driving the model was obtained from the ERA-INTERIM reanalysis . The climate change signal due to AMZ deforestation is evaluated by comparing the climatology of the CTRL with the LUC. AMZ deforestation changes the precipitation pattern over northern South America, i.e., appears a dipolar response consisting of reduced precipitation over eastern AMZ and an increased precipitation over western AMZ. Concerning the temperature, there is a warmer anomaly over the deforested areas, and it contributes to decrease the surface pressure. The increase in air temperature is associated to an increase of the sensible heat flux and a decrease of the latent heat flux.
