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 ...
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 ...
Coupled atmosphere-ice-ocean dynamics in Dansgaard-Oeschger events
The Dansgaard-Oeschger events of the last ice age are among the best studied abrupt climate changes, yet a comprehensive explanation is still lacking. They are most pronounced in the North Atlantic, where they manifest as ...
Atmospheric response to zonally averaged sea surface temperatures in the North Atlantic - a model study
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-29)
A less dynamically active ocean will most likely lead to a more zonal sea surface temperature (SST) distribution. In order to identify if, and how such an effect affects the atmospheric variability, idealized experiments ...
