Climate-carbon cycle feedback analysis: Results from the C
Eleven coupled climate–carbon cycle models used a common protocol to study the coupling between climate change and the carbon cycle. The models were forced by historical emissions and theExpand

A Quasi-Equilibrium Tropical Circulation Model—Formulation *
A class of model for simulation and theory of the tropical atmospheric component of climate variations is introduced. These models are referred to as quasi-equilibrium tropical circulation models, orExpand

The Hydrological Cycle in the Mediterranean Region and Implications for the Water Budget of the Mediterranean Sea
Abstract The hydrological cycle in the Mediterranean region is analyzed focusing on climatology and interannual to interdecadal variability, in particular long-term changes related to theExpand

An Atlantic influence on Amazon rainfall
Rainfall variability over the Amazon basin has often been linked to variations in Pacific sea surface temperature (SST), and in particular, to the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO). However, only aExpand

Seasonal cycle and interannual variability in the Amazon hydrologic cycle
An analysis of the Amazon basin hydrologic cycle has been carried out using the NASA/Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS-1) atmospheric reanalysis, observed rainfall of Xie and Arkin (1996), andExpand

Seasonally Modulated Tropical Drought Induced by Volcanic Aerosol
Major volcanic events with a high loading of stratospheric aerosol have long been known to cause cooling, but their impact on precipitation has only recently been emphasized, especially as an analogExpand

Detection and attribution of vegetation greening trend in China over the last 30 years.
The reliable detection and attribution of changes in vegetation growth is a prerequisite for the development of strategies for the sustainable management of ecosystems. This is an extraordinaryExpand

Long-term climate change in the Mediterranean region in the midst of decadal variability
Abstract Long-term climate change and decadal variability in the Mediterranean region during 1860–2100 are investigated based on observational data and the newly available Coupled ModelExpand

A Quasi-Equilibrium Tropical Circulation Model--Implementation and Simulation*.
The quasi-equilibrium tropical circulation model (QTCM1) is implemented and tested. The formulation, described by Neelin and Zeng, uses a Galerkin framework in the vertical, but with basis functionsExpand

Evaluation of terrestrial carbon cycle models for their response to climate variability and to CO2 trends.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate 10 process-based terrestrial biosphere models that were used for the IPCC fifth Assessment Report. The simulated gross primary productivity (GPP) is comparedExpand
