Paper Abstract

Observational and reanalyses data on surface air temperature and sea level pressure anomalies in the Northern Hemisphere during the 20th century are compared with a focus on the Arctic region. The evolution of temperature anomalies, the spatial distribution of temperature trends and the changes of the atmospheric centers of action (ACA) are analyzed. It is found that changes in temperature and pressure in the Northern Hemisphere extratropic latitudes throughout the 20th century have been more realistically reproduced by the European reanalyses, most successfully in CERA20C reanalysis. The NOAA20C reproduces the evolution and patterns of surface air temperature and sea level pressure anomalies changes significantly worse throughout the 20th century.
