Title: Understanding Hadley Cell Expansion vs. Contraction: Insights from Simplified Models
Abstract: This study seeks a deeper understanding of the causes of Hadley Cell (HC) expansion, as projected under global warming, and HC contraction, as observed under El Nino. Using an idealized general circulation model, we show that a thermal forcing applied to a narrow region around the equator produces ``El Nino--like'' HC contraction, while a forcing with wider meridional extent produces ``global warming--like''
