Simulating Arctic Climate Warmth and Icefield Retreat in the Last Interglaciation
In the future, Arctic warming and the melting of polar glaciers will be considerable, but the magnitude of both is uncertain. We used a global climate model, a dynamic ice sheet model, andExpand
Investigating the Causes of the Response of the Thermohaline Circulation to Past and Future Climate Changes
The Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) is an important part of the earth’s climate system. Previous research has shown large uncertainties in simulating future changes in this critical system.Expand
Model-based evidence of deep-ocean heat uptake during surface-temperature hiatus periods
In some decades, such as 2000–2009, the observed globally averaged surface-temperature time series has shown a flat or slightly negative trend. A modelling study provides evidence that heat uptake byExpand
How Much More Global Warming and Sea Level Rise?
Two global coupled climate models show that even if the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere had been stabilized in the year 2000, we are already committed to further global warmingExpand
A model intercomparison of changes in the Atlantic thermohaline circulation in response to increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration
[ 1] As part of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, integrations with a common design have been undertaken with eleven different climate models to compare the response of the AtlanticExpand
Megadroughts in the Indian Monsoon Region and Southwest North America and a Mechanism for Associated Multidecadal Pacific Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies
Abstract A 1360-yr control run from a global coupled climate model (the Parallel Climate Model) is analyzed. It simulates “megadroughts” in the southwestern United States and Indian monsoon regions.Expand
Climate Change Projections in CESM1(CAM5) Compared to CCSM4
AbstractFuture climate change projections for phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) are presented for the Community Earth System Model version 1 that includes the CommunityExpand
Influence of Bering Strait flow and North Atlantic circulation on glacial sea-level changes
Sea-level fluctuations of about 20-30m occurred throughout the last glacial period. These fluctuations seem to have been derived primarily from changes in the volume of Northern Hemisphere iceExpand
Climate System Response to External Forcings and Climate Change Projections in CCSM4
AbstractResults are presented from experiments performed with the Community Climate System Model, version 4 (CCSM4) for the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5). These includeExpand
North Pacific climate response to freshwater forcing in the subarctic North Atlantic: oceanic and atmospheric pathways.
Abstract Sudden changes of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) are believed to have caused large, abrupt climate changes over many parts of the globe during the last glacial andExpand
