                         American/Atlantic sector accompanying dry and wet years over 
                         north-eastern Brazil (NEB) in which the tropical Pacific and 
                         Atlantic oceanic-atmospheric conditions usually associated, 
                         respectively, with dryness and wetness are absent. The analyses 
                         are for several variables and take into account the warm and cold 
                         Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) phases (WAMO and CAMO). 
                         Four cases are analysed: DRY-WAMO, DRY-CAMO, WET-WAMO and 
                         WET-CAMO. The main difference in the sea surface temperature (SST) 
                         anomaly patterns in the tropics between the AMO phases responsible 
                         for the differences in the precipitation anomaly patterns is the 
                         differential longitude positioning of the warming or cooling of 
                         the surface waters in the equatorial Atlantic. In consequence, the 
                         anomalous Atlantic Hadley and Walker circulations also show 
                         differences between the AMO phases, which justify the observed 
                         precipitation anomalies over tropical South America for the 
                         analysed cases. The strong anomalous Atlantic Hadley cell 
                         determines the dipolar structure of the precipitation anomalies 
                         between NEB and northern South America for the DRY-WAMO and 
                         WET-WAMO cases. The strong anomalous Atlantic Walker cell defines 
                         the dryness over NEB for the DRY-CAMO, and both the strong 
                         anomalous Atlantic Hadley and Walker cells act together to yield 
                         an anomalous dry condition over NEB and wet condition over 
                         northern South America. Therefore, the results here provided clear 
                         indications that for climate monitoring and forecasting tasks, the 
                         AMO phases should be considered. These are new aspects of the 
                         tropical Atlantic variability that might be useful for climate 
                         monitoring purposes.",
