Is warm weather to Europe, North America's greatest export?
Listen to the science conversation between Tim Woollings, Associate Professor at the University of Oxford, and Stephen Outten and Ingjald Pilskog podcast hosts and researchers at the Bjerknes Centre.
Dr. Tim Woollings, has been visiting researcher at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research the last months. He is an expert in jet streams and large scale atmospheric dynamics.
The scientists discuss how the jet stream causes heat waves and cold periods, how the jet stream is affected by a changing climate and how the tropics and the Arctic pushes the jet northwards and southwards.
Fasten your seatbelts and join a trip with the jet stream around the globe, southwards along the Rocky Mountains and free and variable northeast bound across the North Atlantic.
