Forecast for the Temperate Zone: Hot and Dry?
Science published a study by Fu that examines 27 years of satellite data indicating that, relative to the global-mean trends of the respective layers, both hemispheres have experienced more tropospheric warming and stratospheric cooling in the 15 to 45� latitude belt. This pattern indicates a widening of the tropical circulation and a poleward shift of the tropospheric jet streams and their associated subtropical dry zones.
