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 ...
Future climate change: Modeling and scenarios for the Arctic
A Possible Feedback Mechanism Involving the Arctic Freshwater, the Arctic Sea Ice, and the North Atlantic Drift
(Science Press, 2004-03-15)
Model studies point to enhanced warming and to increased freshwater fluxes to high northern latitudes in response to global warming. In order to address possible feedbacks in the ice-ocean system in response to such ...
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 ...
Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe
(GODAE Project Office and Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, 2001-12)
During the first decade of the 21st century Earth observation from satellites will be faced with two major demands: provision of continuity missions and launch of new exploratory missions. This paper addresses European ...
Last Glacial Maximum over China: Sensitivities of climate to paleovegetation and Tibetan ice sheet
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-02-06)
With the boundary conditions appropriate for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), including ice sheets, sea surface temperatures, sea-ice distribution, atmospheric CO2 concentration, the Earth’s orbital parameters, topography, ...
Data assimilation for coastal zone monitoring and forecasting
(Elsevier Science, 1997)
The Effect of Diapycnal Mixing on the Ventilation and CFC-11 Uptake in the Southern Ocean
(Science Press, 2004-03-04)
The Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) is used to investigate the effect of diapycnal mixing on the oceanic uptake of CFC-11 and the ventilation of the surface waters in the Southern Ocean (south of 45°S). ...
The North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse-gas forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-17)
The results of 12 coupled climate models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP2) are compared together with observational data in order to investigate: 1) How the current generation of climate ...
Tracer-derived transit time of the waters in the eastern Nordic Seas
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2005-08-25)
The spatial-temporal distribution of the anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plant in the Irish Sea is simulated using a global version of the Miami Isopycnic ...
