Introduction to climate modelling by Thomas Stocker( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three-tier approach is presented: (i) fundamental dynamical concepts of climate processes, (ii) their mathematical formulation based on balance equations, and (iii) the necessary numerical techniques to solve these equations. This book showcases the global energy balance of the climate system and feedback processes that determine the climate sensitivity, initial-boundary value problems, energy transport in the climate system, large-scale ocean circulation and abrupt climate change
Climate change 2013 : the physical science basis : Working Group I contribution to the Fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by Intergouvernemental panel on climate change( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This latest Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will again form the standard scientific reference for all those concerned with climate change and its consequences, including students and researchers in environmental science, meteorology, climatology, biology, ecology and atmospheric chemistry. It provides invaluable material for decision makers and stakeholders: international, national, local; and in all branches: government, businesses, and NGOs. This volume provides:• An authoritative and unbiased overview of the physical science basis of climate change• A more extensive assessment of changes observed throughout the climate system than ever before• New dedicated chapters on sea-level change, biogeochemical cycles, clouds and aerosols, and regional climate phenomena• A more extensive coverage of model projections, both near-term and long-term climate projections• A detailed assessment of climate change observations, modelling, and attribution for every continent• A new comprehensive atlas of global and regional climate projections for 35 regions of the world

A Coupled, Zonally Averaged Atmosphere-Ocean Model: Variability of the Thermohaline Circulation( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two experiments with a recently developed zonally averaged climate model which includes the ocean's thermohaline circulation are performed. The first experiment simulates a global thermohaline circulation in which deep water is formed in the North Atlantic, flows as a deep current into the Pacific basin and then upwells. The water is returned as a near-surface flow through the Indian Ocean into the South Atlantic Gordon, 1986. The present model reproduces a global deep circulation under present-day forcing and shows that the zonal atmospheric water vapor transport is of importance. The second experiment studies the effect of glacial meltwater runoff at different latitudes on the thermohaline circulation, meridional heat flux and surface air temperature. Depending on the strength and position of the forcing anomaly, severe cooling can be observed in high northern latitudes. The mechanism may provide further insight into the Younger Dryas climate event

Dust record from the EPICA Dome C ice core, Antarctica, covering 0 to 800 kyr BP, supplementary data to: Lambert, Fabrice; Delmonte, Barbara; Petit, Jean-Robert; Bigler, Matthias; Kaufmann, Patrik R; Hutterli, Manuel A; Stocker, Thomas F; Ruth, Urs; Steffensen, J?rgen P; Maggi, Valter (2008): Dust-climate couplings over the past 800,000 years from the EPICA Dome C ice core. Nature, 452, 616-619 by Fabrice Lambert( )

Dust can affect the radiative balance of the atmosphere by absorbing or reflecting incoming solar radiation and it can be a source of micronutrients, such as iron, to the ocean. It has been suggested that production, transport, and deposition of dust is influenced by climatic changes on glacial-interglacial timescales. Here we present a high-resolution aeolian dust record from the EPICA Dome C ice core in East Antarctica, which provides an undisturbed climate sequence over the last eight climatic cycles. We find that there is a significant correlation between dust flux and temperature records during glacial periods that is absent during interglacial periods. Our data suggests that dust flux is increasingly correlated with Antarctic temperature as climate becomes colder. We interpret this as progressive coupling of Antarctic and lower latitudes climate. Limited changes in glacial-interglacial atmospheric transport time Mahowald et al. (1999, doi:10.1029/1999JD900084), Jouzel et al. (2007, doi:10.1126/science. 1141038), and Werner et al. (2002, doi:10.1029/2002JD002365) suggest that the sources and lifetime of dust are the major factors controlling the high glacial dust input. We propose that the observed 25-fold increase in glacial dust flux over all eight glacial periods can be attributed to a strengthening of South American dust sources, together with a longer atmospheric dust particle life-time in the upper troposphere resulting from a reduced hydrological cycle during the ice ages
