Paper Abstract

This paper deals with possible causes of broken relationships between geomagnetic activity (GA) and sea surface temperature (SST) in the regions where it is most prominent. We analyze data of 0/700 m ocean heat content, SST, and wind stress for the period 1948–2013. The aa index is used to describe geomagnetic activity. The zonal wind stress is demonstrated to have a significant effect on sea surface temperature in the regions under consideration. Increased fluctuations of heat content anomalies and change in wind stress structure have been noted since the 1976 climate shift.
