Interdecadal Variations of the Thermohaline Circulation in a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model
Abstract A fully coupled ocean-atmosphere model is shown to have irregular oscillations of the thermohaline circulation in the North Atlantic Ocean with a time scale of approximately 50 years. The
Thermal Equilibrium of the Atmosphere with a Given Distribution of Relative Humidity
Abstract Radiative convective equilibrium of the atmosphere with a given distribution of relative humidity is computed as the asymptotic state of an initial value problem. The results show that it
Two Stable Equilibria of a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model
Abstract Two stable equilibria have been obtained from a global model of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system developed at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory of NOAA. The model used for this
Simulated response of the ocean carbon cycle to anthropogenic climate warming
A 1995 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change provides a set of illustrative anthropogenic CO2 emission models leading to stabilization of atmospheric CO2 concentrations ranging from
Transient responses of a coupled ocean-atmosphere model to gradual changes of atmospheric CO2
An improved method for surface treatment of metallic materials is described herein. The improvement exists in that a surface treatment agent and a metallic material to be treated are placed in a
Time-Mean Response over the Tropical Pacific to Increased C02 in a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model
Abstract The time-mean response over the tropical Pacific region to a quadrupling Of CO2 is investigated using a global coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model. Tropical Pacific sea
Thermal Equilibrium of the Atmosphere with a Convective Adjustment
Abstract The states of thermal equilibrium (incorporating an adjustment of super-adiabatic stratification) as well as that of pure radiative equilibrium of the atmosphere are computed as the
The influence of potential evaporation on the variabilities of simulated soil wetness and climate
Abstract An atmospheric general circulation model with prescribed sea surface temperature and cloudiness was integrated for 50 years in order to study atmosphere-land surface interactions. The
Multiple-Century Response of a Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Model to an Increase of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Abstract To speculate on the future change of climate over several centuries, three 500-year integrations of a coupled ocean-atmosphere model were performed. In addition to the standard integration
Cloud Feedback Processes in a General Circulation Model
Abstract The influence of the cloud feedback process upon the sensitivity of climate is investigated by comparing the behavior of two versions of a climate model with predicted and prescribed cloud
