This chapter considers a set of issues related to the synoptic climatology of the Mediterranean region (MR). The main Northern Hemisphere teleconnections affecting the MR and their role on temperature, precipitation, and atmospheric cyclones are described. The characteristics of the cyclones in the MR are presented. The role of teleconnections and atmospheric regimes on temperature and precipitation is discussed. The content includes extremes of temperature, precipitation, wind, and storminess (considering also marine aspects such as waves and storm surges).

Abstract

This chapter considers a set of issues related to the synoptic climatology of the Mediterranean region (MR). The main Northern Hemisphere teleconnections affecting the MR and their role on temperature, precipitation, and atmospheric cyclones are described. The characteristics of the cyclones in the MR are presented. The role of teleconnections and atmospheric regimes on temperature and precipitation is discussed. The content includes extremes of temperature, precipitation, wind, and storminess (considering also marine aspects such as waves and storm surges).
