  • A series of general circulation model experiments utilizing GENESIS have been completed for the mid-Cretaceous based on geography, variable atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations (2 to 6 times present-day concentrations), and variable poleward oceanic heat flux (.6 to 1.2 × 1015 W increased from present day). By combining all three major variables (CO2, geography, and oceanic heat flux), the distribution of mid-Cretaceous temperatures can be achieved. In the simulations, increased CO2 is… CONTINUE READING
