Simple Spectral Models for Atmospheric Radiative Cooling
AbstractAtmospheric radiative cooling is a fundamental aspect of Earth’s greenhouse effect, and is intrinsically connected to atmospheric motions. At the same time, basic aspects of longwave radiat...
Planetary Atmospheres as Nonequilibrium Condensed
Planetary atmospheres, and models of them, are discussed from the viewpoint of condensed matter physics. Atmospheres are a form of condensed matter, and many of the most interesting concepts of
Climate System Dynamics and Modelling
1. Description of the climate system and its components 2. The energy balance, hydrological and carbon cycles 3. Modelling the climate system 4. The response of the climate system to a perturbation

A simple carbon-cycle box model allows for very simple quantitative insight into the evolution of climate over the next millennium. While melting ice sheets, rising sea levels, and ocean
The physics of climate change: simple models in climate science
There is a perception that climate science can only be approached with complex computer simulations. But working climate scientists often use simple models to understand their simulations and make
Low simulated radiation limit for runaway greenhouse climates
As a moist atmosphere warms, it will reach a limit after which it is unable to radiate incoming solar radiation back to space, and a runaway greenhouse will occur. Calculations suggest that this
The Relationship Between a Variable Orbital Eccentricity and Climate on an Earth-Like Planet
By using climate models based on the Earth’s climate, you can get information about how the climate on exoplanets can look like. ROCKE-3D is a general circulation model based on ModelE2, which is u
Topological Climate Change
TLDR
A bifurcation analysis of a simple Energy Balance Model (EBM) of the Earth’s climate suggests that topological change has occurred in the paleoclimate history of the Ea...
Atmospheric Dynamics of Temperate Sub-Neptunes. I. Dry Dynamics
Sub-Neptunes (planets with radii between 2 and 4 R ⊕) are abundant around M-dwarf stars, yet the atmospheric dynamics of these planets is relatively unexplored. In this paper, we aim to provide a
