Variations in boundary layer stability across Antarctica: a comparison between coastal and interior sites

Dec. 11, 2023

The range of boundary layer stability profiles, from the surface to 500 m a.g.l. (above ground level), present in radiosonde observations from two continental-interior (South Pole Station and Dome Concordia Station) and three coastal (McMurdo Station, Georg von Neumayer Station III, and Syowa Station) Antarctic sites, is examined using the self-organizing maps (SOMs) neural network algorithm.

Observed changes in hydroclimate attributed to human forcing

Dec. 11, 2023

Observational and modeling studies indicate significant changes in the global hydroclimate in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries due to anthropogenic climate change.

Antarctic Ice Sheet Freshwater Discharge Drives Substantial Southern Ocean Changes Over the 21st Century

Dec. 11, 2023

Multidecadal satellite observations indicate that the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) is losing mass at an accelerating rate, which has the potential to impact many aspects of the climate system.

Thermodynamic and kinematic drivers of atmospheric boundary layer stability in the central Arctic during the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC)

Dec. 11, 2023

Observations collected during the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) provide a detailed description of the impact of thermodynamic and kinematic forcings on atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) stability in the central Arctic.

The Impact of Orbital Precession on Air-Sea CO2 Exchange in the Southern Ocean

Dec. 11, 2023

Orbital precession has been linked to glacial cycles and the atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration, yet the direct impact of precession on the carbon cycle is not well understood.

Persistent ocean anomalies as a response to Northern Hemisphere heating induced by biomass burning variability

Oct. 5, 2023

In this work we document the long-lasting effects of CESM2's climate response to CMIP6 prescribed biomass emissions. Most notably these effects are found to persist well into the 21st C in the Atlantic and Tropical Pacific Oceans.

A need for actionable climate projections across the Global South

Oct. 5, 2023

We highlight the inconsistencies of climate projections for much of the Global South from six generations of IPCC assessments and note that these have compounded the many challenges it faces in adapting to climate change.
