Large-scale features of Pliocene climate: results from the Pliocene Model Intercomparison Project
Climate and environments of the mid-Pliocene warm period (3.264 to 3.025 Ma) have been extensively studied. Whilst numerical models have shed light on the nature of climate at the time, uncertaintiesExpand

Pre-industrial and mid-Pliocene simulations with NorESM-L
We use the low resolution version of the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM-L) to simulate the pre-industrial and the mid-Pliocene climate. Expand

Early Eocene Asian climate dominated by desert and steppe with limited monsoons
Abstract Paleoenvironmental reconstructions illustrated that Asia was dominated by a zonal climate pattern in the Eocene epoch, with an almost latitudinal arid/semiarid band extending from theExpand

Tropical seaways played a more important role than high latitude seaways in Cenozoic cooling
Abstract. Following the Early Eocene climatic optimum (EECO, ~55–50 Ma), climate deteriorated and gradually changed the earth from a greenhouse into an icehouse, with major cooling events at theExpand

The impact of regional uplift of the Tibetan Plateau on the Asian monsoon climate
Abstract The climatic effect of Tibetan Plateau (TP) uplift is a hot topic in paleoclimate research. In this paper, the results of a set of numerical simulations are reported to analyze the impact ofExpand

Deciphering the role of southern gateways and carbon dioxide on the onset of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current
[1] Growth of Antarctic ice sheet during the Cenozoic 34 million years ago appears as a potential tipping point in the long term cooling trend that began 50 Ma ago. For decades, the onset of theExpand

Pre-industrial and mid-Pliocene simulations with NorESM-L: AGCM simulations
We describe the AGCM experiments with the atmosphere component in the low-resolution version of the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM-L), and also assess the potential uncertainties in analyzing mid-Pliocene climate anomalies that might result from the choice of the sea surface temperature (SST) forcing for the reference experiment.

The Norwegian Earth System Model, NorESM2 – Evaluation of theCMIP6 DECK and historical simulations
The second version of the fully coupled Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM2) is presented and evaluated, along with the ability of the model to simulate the historical climate under the CMIP6 forcings. Expand

Arctic sea ice simulation in the PlioMIP ensemble
Abstract. Eight general circulation models have simulated the mid-Pliocene warm period (mid-Pliocene, 3.264 to 3.025 Ma) as part of the Pliocene Modelling Intercomparison Project (PlioMIP). Here, weExpand

Major changes in East Asian climate in the mid-Pliocene: Triggered by the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau or global cooling?
Since the mid-Pliocene, East Asian climates have experienced significant changes. One view suggests that significant uplift of the Tibetan Plateau during this period could have been responsible forExpand
