Bedoya-Sota Poveda Sauchyn-2018-New insights on land surface-atmosphere feedbacks over tropical South America at interannual timescales

We present a simplified overview of land-atmosphere feedbacks at interannual timescales over tropical South America as structural sets of linkages among surface air temperature (T), specific humidity at 925 hPa (q925), volumetric soil water content (Θ), precipitation (P), and evaporation (E), at monthly scale during 1979–2010. Applying a Maximum Covariance Analysis (MCA), we identify
the modes of greatest interannual covariability in the datasets.
