Posible modulación de las circulaciones anticiclónicas por las variaciones de la actividad solar

Se investigan los cambios de las circulaciones anticiclónicas subtropicales inducidos  por la varíación solar en las zonas oceánicas. Utilizando el reanálisis NCEP/NCAR se examinan esos cambios indagando en la hipotética acción de la radiación solar de UV que incide e influencia la estratosfera y la alta troposfera. Establecida la hipótesis de que la mayor o menor actividad solar modifica el perfil de temperatura vertical y por ello la estabilidad estática se busca un predictor que pueda anticipar la mayor o menor actividad de las células anticiclónicas.
