A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming
The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
Simulated North Atlantic-Nordic Seas water mass exchanges in an isopycnic coordinate OGCM
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-05-29)
The variability in the volume exchanges between the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas during the last 50 years is investigated using a synoptic forced, global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). ...
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 ...
Simulated variability of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation
(Springer Verlag, 2004-04-17)
To examine the multi-annual to decadal scale variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), a four-member ensemble with a daily reanalysis forced, medium-resolution global version of the isopycnic ...
Effects of diapycnal and isopycnal mixing on the ventilation of CFCs in the North Atlantic in an isopycnic coordinate OGCM
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2003)
Simulated distributions of the chlorofluorocarbons CFC-11 and CFC-12 are used to examine the ventilation of the North Atlantic Ocean in a global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). Three simulations ...
