The climatic and physiographic controls of the eastern Mediterranean over the late Pleistocene climates in the southern Levant and its neighboring deserts
Modern-day synoptic-scale eastern Mediterranean climatology provides a useful context to synthesize the diverse late Pleistocene (60–12 ka) paleohydrologic and paleoenvironmental indicators of pastExpand
Carbon residence time dominates uncertainty in terrestrial vegetation responses to future climate and atmospheric CO2
Seven global vegetation models are used to analyze possible responses to future climate simulated by a range of general circulation models run under all four representative concentration pathway scenarios of changing concentrations of greenhouse gases, finding uncertainties explain 30% more variation in modeled vegetation carbon change than responses of net primary productivity alone.

Synoptic climatology of major floods in the Negev Desert, Israel
This study examines the extent to which the floods in the Negev Desert, an area that constitutes the southern half of Israel, are not the outcome of purely local weather conditions but are, rather,Expand
Long-Term Relationships between Synaptic Tenacity, Synaptic Remodeling, and Network Activity
Long term time-lapse imaging reveals that individual synapses undergo significant structural remodeling not only when driven by activity, but also when network activity is absent, raising questionsExpand
Atmospheric predictors for major floods in the Negev Desert, Israel
The study examines the ability of a set of atmospheric variables to predict major floods in the Negev Desert in the southern part of Israel. The two dominant synoptic types, which contributed overExpand
Quantifying uncertainties in soil carbon responses to changes in global mean temperature and precipitation
Abstract. Soil organic carbon (SOC) is the largest carbon pool in terrestrial ecosystems and may play a key role in biospheric feedbacks with elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in a warmerExpand
Global and European climate impacts of a slowdown of the AMOC in a high resolution GCM
Abstract The impacts of a hypothetical slowdown in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) are assessed in a state-of-the-art global climate model (HadGEM3), with particular emphasisExpand
Climate and land use change impacts on global terrestrial ecosystems and river flows in the HadGEM2-ES Earth system model using the representative concentration pathways
Abstract. A new generation of an Earth system model now includes a number of land-surface processes directly relevant to analyzing potential impacts of climate change. This model, HadGEM2-ES, allowsExpand
Decomposing uncertainties in the future terrestrial carbon budget associated with emission scenarios, climate projections, and ecosystem simulations using the ISI-MIP results
Abstract. We examined the changes to global net primary production (NPP), vegetation biomass carbon (VegC), and soil organic carbon (SOC) estimated by six global vegetation models (GVMs) obtainedExpand
Optimal tuning of a GCM using modern and glacial constraints
This study presents an objective tuning of a low resolution Atmosphere–Ocean General Circulation Model called FAMOUS where ten model parameters are varied together using a Latin hypercube sampling method to create an ensemble of 100 models. Expand
