Abstract:

Correlations of latitudinal dynamics of the atmospheric moisture content (W) with quasi-biennial oscillations (QBO) of zonal wind in the equatorial stratosphere and solar activity over the north-east of Eurasia during 1979–2015 are analyzed with the use of data of AERONET sun-sky photometers (st. Yakutsk, st. Tomsk, st. Irkutsk, and st. Dalanzadgad) and ERA-Interim reanalysis, based on the regular meteorological observations, aerological and satellite information. Reliably significant correlation is found between the mean annual values of W and QBO during its eastern phase. At the same time, variations in W, depending on latitude, reveal the fundamental cycles of solar activity (Schwabe, Hale, and Bruckner).

Keywords:
