  12. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Afternoon Session

    12 May 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Colin James Grudzien

    Charles Jackson, University of Texas, AustinDual-state Behavior of the Community Climate System ModelIce age climate between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago experienced abrupt (< 10 year) global-scale climate transitions every few thousand years. Evidence and theory suggests such behavior may be...
