descriptive of a weather system of high atmospheric pressure at sea level in which light winds flow spirally outwards, clockwise in the northern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the southern hemisphere, giving rise to settled weather conditions.
Interestingly, it is found that this extreme event would hardly have occurred without anthropogenic warming, which is linked to increased probability of occurrence of extremely enhanced anticyclones in the Okhotsk Sea by 2.5-3.2 times due to human-induced warming.
Lelieveld and his colleagues set out to find out what happened to these pollutants once they reached the anticyclone. The researchers travelled along the western part of the anticyclone, which is the sky between Cyprus and the Maldives, at an altitude between 9,000-15,000 metres.
The large scale weather is comprised of ridging anticyclone and west coast trough which generates sustained easterly winds over the Cape Peninsula and cold upwelling plumes that extend >100 km seaward (Figures 3(b) and 4(a)-4(c)).

Spatial variation in growth was analyzed across oceanographic features (anticyclone, front, and open ocean) for three of the five surveys, and significant differences in growth were observed during August 2006 collections (Table 4).
