Evolution of Asian monsoons and phased uplift of the Himalaya–Tibetan plateau since Late Miocene times
The results of a numerical climate-model experiment support the argument that the stages in evolution of Asian monsoons are linked to phases of Himalaya–Tibetan plateau uplift and to Northern Hemisphere glaciation.
Projected distributions of novel and disappearing climates by 2100 AD
This work analyzes multimodel ensembles for the A2 and B1 emission scenarios produced for the fourth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with the goal of identifying regions projected to experience high magnitudes of local climate change, development of novel 21st-century climates, and/or the disappearance of extant climates.
Transient Simulation of Last Deglaciation with a New Mechanism for Bølling-Allerød Warming
The first synchronously coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model simulation from the Last Glacial Maximum to the Bølling-Allerød (BA) warming reproduces several major features of the deglacial climate evolution, suggesting a good agreement in climate sensitivity between the model and observations.
A severe centennial-scale drought in midcontinental North America 4200 years ago and apparent global linkages
We present evidence from a variety of physical and biological proxies for a severe drought that affected the mid-continent of North America between 4.1 and 4.3 ka. Rapid climate changes associated
On the Structure and Origin of Major Glaciation Cycles .2. the 100,000-year Cycle
Climate over the past million years has been dominated by glaciation cycles with periods near 23,000, 41,000, and 100,000 years. In a linear version of the Milankovitch theory, the two shorter cycles
Monsoon variability over the past 150,000 years
Paleoclimatic records adjacent to India and Africa show major variability that is related to large fluctuations in the wind and precipitation fields associated with monsoonal circulations. Much of
The Community Climate System Model
The history of the CCSM, its current capabilities, and plans for its future development and applications are outlined, with the goal of providing a summary useful to present and future users.
The Influence of Changing Orbital Parameters and Surface Boundary Conditions on Climate Simulations for the Past 18 000 Years
Abstract General circulation model experiments at 3000-year intervals for the past 18 000 years were made to estimate the magnitude, timing, and pattern of the climatic response to prescribed changes
