North Atlantic storm track changes during the Last Glacial Maximum recorded by Alpine speleothems
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-02-27)
The European Alps are an effective barrier for meridional moisture transport and are thus uniquely placed to record shifts in the North Atlantic storm track pattern associated with the waxing and waning of Late-Pleistocene ...
Solar forcing synchronizes decadal North Atlantic climate variability
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-09-15)
Quasi-decadal variability in solar irradiance has been suggested to exert a substantial effect on Earth’s regional climate. In the North Atlantic sector, the 11-year solar signal has been proposed to project onto a pattern ...
Thermodynamic controls of the Atlantic Niño
(Nature Publishing Group (NPG), 2015-11-26)
Prevailing theories on the equatorial Atlantic Niño are based on the dynamical interaction between atmosphere and ocean. However, dynamical coupled ocean-atmosphere models poorly simulate and predict equatorial Atlantic ...
Calving rates at tidewater glaciers vary strongly with ocean temperature
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10-09)
Rates of ice mass loss at the calving margins of tidewater glaciers (frontal ablation rates) are a key uncertainty in sea level rise projections. Measurements are difficult because mass lost is replaced by ice flow at ...
