The surface heat fluxes at the atmosphere-ice-ocean interface over the Ross and Weddell Seas (Antarctica) moved from opposite to synchronous during the period 1972-2015. An attempt was made to link these results to the signature of global climate variability through the wavelet analysis of SOI and SAMi in order to suggest a hypothetical mechanism of interaction. The synchronous behavior, observed since 2001, coincided with a change in the energy peak associated to the time scale of the SAM variability, which moved from 32 to 64 months. This change generated a common energy peak for the SAM and ENSO with a lagged in phase relationship between the signals, which possibly influenced the surface heat fluxes variability over both areas. These evidences suggest a change in the dominant mode of variability over the Southern Hemisphere. View this paper
