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 ...
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 ...
Inception of the Northern European Ice Sheet due to contrasting ocean and insolation forcing
About 115,000 years ago the last interglacial reached its terminus and nucleation of new ice sheet growth was initiated. Evidence from the northernmost Nordic Seas indicate that the inception of the last glacial was ...
