  1. Vladimir Alexeev Seminar II (joint Paleo and Cryosphere)

    06 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir Alexeev

    One of the most pronounced changes in the Arctic is the decline in minimum sea ice extent that has been continuing for a couple of decades. One potential reason for this decline is the changed polarity of the transpolar drift (TD) pattern, also often called Arctic Dipole. This pattern is at least...

  3. Gomez Seminar Part 1 (joint Paleo and Cryosphere)

    30 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Natalya Gomez

    I will begin with an overview of the physics, modeling and measurement of static sea-level changes and glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) following variations in the distribution of grounded ice, including some applications of sea-level theory to paleo and modern climate problems. I will then...

  4. Global Warming Could Be Nonlinear

    23 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Jonah Bloch-Johnson

    It is widely acknowledged that many components of the Earth's climate system exhibit nonlinear behavior when forced, with examples ranging from ice sheets to ocean circulations to savanna. These changes, as profound as they are, are not expected to greatly impact global climate, as...

  6. The mid-Pleistocene transition as a transcritical bifurcation on a slow manifold - February 18m 2015

    16 Sep 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Ashwin

    The Quaternary Period has been characterized by a cyclical series of glaciations, which are attributed to the change in the insolation (incoming solar radiation) from changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. The spectral power in the climate record is very different from that of the orbital...

  8. The Mathematics of Paleoclimate Reconstructions Lecture 1 - February 4, 2015

    16 Sep 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Julien Emile-Geay

    Since the seminal publication of the “hockey stick” study in 1998 [1,2], proxy-based estimates (“reconstrutions”) of Earth’s temperature field over the past millennium have become a key part of the climate science edifice. The “hockey stick” curve showed...

  9. The Mathematics of Paleoclimate Reconstructions Lecture 2 - February 11, 2015

    16 Sep 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Julien Emile-Geay

    Since the seminal publication of the “hockey stick” study in 1998 [1,2], proxy-based estimates (“reconstrutions”) of Earth’s temperature field over the past millennium have become a key part of the climate science edifice. The “hockey stick” curve showed relatively stable temperatures for most of...

  10. Periodic Fluctuations in deep water formation due to sea ice - Wednesday, January 21st/28th

    16 Sep 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Raj Saha

    A simple dynamical model is used to demonstrate the possibility of stable and periodic variability in oceanic convection on a millennial timescale. Sea ice could act as a heat valve over the region of deep water formation in the North Atlantic, particularly during the last glacial period when sea...

    To a mathematical mind bent on understanding nature, climate dynamics strikes an ideal blend of mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, biology, and social sciences. I am also convinced that...
