The Max-Planck-Institute global ocean/sea ice model with orthogonal curvilinear coordinates
Abstract The Hamburg Ocean Primitive Equation model has undergone significant development in recent years. Most notable is the treatment of horizontal discretisation which has undergone transitionExpand
Ocean Circulation and Tropical Variability in the Coupled Model ECHAM5/MPI-OM
Abstract This paper describes the mean ocean circulation and the tropical variability simulated by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) coupled atmosphere–ocean general circulation modelExpand
Will the tropical land biosphere dominate the climate–carbon cycle feedback during the twenty-first century?
Global warming caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions is expected to reduce the capability of the ocean and the land biosphere to take up carbon. This will enlarge the fraction of the CO2 emissionsExpand
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
Climate and carbon cycle changes from 1850 to 2100 in MPI‐ESM simulations for the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5
[1] The new Max-Planck-Institute Earth System Model (MPI-ESM) is used in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5) in a series of climate change experiments for either idealizedExpand
Advancing decadal-scale climate prediction in the North Atlantic sector
The results suggest that global surface temperature may not increase over the next decade, as natural climate variations in the North Atlantic and tropical Pacific temporarily offset the projected anthropogenic warming. Expand
Coordinated Ocean-ice Reference Experiments (COREs)
Coordinated Ocean-ice Reference Experiments (COREs) are presented as a tool to explore the behaviour of global ocean-ice models under forcing from a common atmospheric dataset. We highlight issuesExpand
Climate and carbon-cycle variability over the last millennium
Abstract. A long-standing task in climate research has been to distinguish between anthropogenic climate change and natural climate variability. A prerequisite for fulfilling this task is theExpand
Arctic-North Atlantic Interactions and Multidecadal Variability of the Meridional Overturning Circulation
Analyses of a 500-yr control integration with the non-flux-adjusted coupled atmosphere–sea ice–ocean model ECHAM5/Max-Planck-Institute Ocean Model (MPI-OM) show pronounced multidecadal fluctuationsExpand
