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...

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 sealevel changes and glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) following variations in the distribution of grounded ice, including some applications of sealevel theory to paleo and modern climate problems. I will then...

Global Warming Could Be Nonlinear
23 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Jonah BlochJohnson
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...

The midPleistocene 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...

The Mathematics of Paleoclimate Reconstructions Lecture 1  February 4, 2015
16 Sep 2015   Contributor(s):: Julien EmileGeay
Since the seminal publication of the “hockey stick” study in 1998 [1,2], proxybased 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...

The Mathematics of Paleoclimate Reconstructions Lecture 2  February 11, 2015
16 Sep 2015   Contributor(s):: Julien EmileGeay
Since the seminal publication of the “hockey stick” study in 1998 [1,2], proxybased 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...

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...
