Conceptual models of the climate : 2001 program of studies in geophysical fluid dynamics
Balmforth, Neil J.
MetadataShow full item record
In 2001, the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Summer Study Program grappled with Conceptual Models of the Climate. Eli Tziperman (Weizman Institute), Paola Cessi (Scripps Institution of Oceanography) and Ray Pierre- Humbert (University of Chicago) provided the principal lectures. This introduction gave us all a glimpse into the complex problem of the climate, both in the present, past and future, and even on other planets. As always, the next weeks of the program were filled with many seminars from the visitors, and culminated in the fellow's reports.

Desert dust and anthropogenic aerosol interactions in the Community Climate System Model coupled-carbon-climate model Mahowald, Natalie M.; Lindsay, Keith; Rothenberg, D.; Doney, Scott C.; Moore, J. Keith; Thornton, Peter E.; Randerson, James T.; Jones, C. D. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2011-02-15)Coupled-carbon-climate simulations are an essential tool for predicting the impact of human activity onto the climate and biogeochemistry. Here we incorporate prognostic desert dust and anthropogenic aerosols into the ...
