A new research article is accepted in Journal of Hydrology. The title of the article is "Atlantic Ocean Sea Surface Temperatures and Southeast United States Streamflow Variability: Associations with the Recent Multi-decadal Decline" [link]. This study is supported by our NSF P2C2 project [link].
• Multidecadal decline in observed records of Southeastern U.S. streamflow since ∼1990.
• Proposed drivers of this decline are AMO warm phase coupled with multiple La Nina events.
• SVD gridded Atlantic Oceans (AO) SSTs confirm a teleconnection with SEUS streamflow.
• SVD indicates rapid increase in AO SSTs corresponds to rapid decrease in SEUS streamflow.
• Using SVD to establish a specific SST driver eliminates noise and verifies the AMO signal.
