Using simulations of the last millennium to understand climate variability seen in palaeo-observations: Similar variation of Iceland-Scotland overflow strength and Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation
(Copernicus Publications, 2015-02-10)
A recent palaeo-reconstruction of the strength of the Iceland–Scotland overflow during the last 600 years suggests that its low-frequency variability exhibits strong similarity with palaeo-reconstructions of the Atlantic ...
Simulating last interglacial climate with NorESM: role of insolation and greenhouse gases in the timing of peak warmth
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-07-10)
The last interglacial (LIG, ~130–116 ka, ka = 1000 yr ago) is characterized by high-latitude warming and is therefore often considered as a possible analogue for future warming. However, in contrast to predicted ...
Arctic Holocene proxy climate database – New approaches to assessing geochronological accuracy and encoding climate variables
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-08-29)
We present a systematic compilation of previously published Holocene proxy climate records from the Arctic. We identified 170 sites from north of 58° N latitude where proxy time series extend back at least to 6 cal ka (all ...
The role of the northward-directed (sub)surface limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation during the 8.2 ka event
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-10-24)
The so-called "8.2 ka event" is widely regarded as a major Holocene climate perturbation. It is most readily identifiable in the oxygen-isotope records from Greenland ice cores as an approximately 160-year-long cold interval ...
