Evaluation of ocean carbon cycle models with data-based metrics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-02)
New radiocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-11 data from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment are used to assess a suite of 19 ocean carbon cycle models. We use the distributions and inventories of these tracers as quantitative ...
Evaluating Global Ocean Carbon Models: The Importance of Realistic Physics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-15)
A suite of standard ocean hydrographic and circulation metrics are applied to the equilibrium physical solutions from 13 global carbon models participating in phase 2 of the Ocean Carbon-cycle Model Intercomparison Project ...
Arctic sea ice and climate change - will the sea ice disappear in this century?
(Blackwell Scientific Publications, 2000)
Annual cycles of sea level and sea surface temperature in the western Mediterranean Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-01)
In the western Mediterranean Sea, sea level variations are the result of seasonal steric effect, atmospheric forcing and mesoscale circulation activity, particularly in the Alboran and Algerian basins, as well as water ...
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)
Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...
Two-phase, near-field modeling of purposefully released CO2 in the ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2001-01-15)
Diagnosing ocean tracer transport from Sellafield and Dounreay by equivalent diffusion and age
(Science Press, 2008-09-27)
A simple approach for estimating the equivalent diffusion for diagnosing tracer transport is proposed. Two different expressions are derived; one is based directly on an analytical solution of the two-dimensional ...
Sensitivity of remote sensing – derived phytoplankton productivity to mixed layer depth: Lessons from the carbon-based productivity model
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-01)
Mixed layer depth (MLD) has long been recognized as having an important influence on underwater light budget and, thus, net primary productivity (NPP) of phytoplankton. The depth- and wavelength-integrated carbon-based ...
High northern latitude surface air temperature: comparison of existing data and creation of a new gridded data set 1900–2000
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008-03)
Detection, attribution and understanding of temperature changes in the high northern latitudes depend on constraining uncertainties and resolving apparent discrepancies in observational data sets. We quantitatively compare ...
