Climate Sensitivity is Sensitive to Changes in Ocean Heat Transport

April 4, 2022

Do changes in ocean heat transport (OHT), that occur with CO 2 forcing, impact climate sensitivity in Earth system models?

Less surface sea ice melt in the CESM2 improves Arctic sea ice simulation with minimal non-polar climate impacts

April 4, 2022

This study isolates the influence of sea ice mean state on pre-industrial climate and transient 1850-2100 climate change within a fully coupled global model: The Community Earth System Model version 2 (CESM2).

Spurious Late Historical-Era Warming in CESM2 Driven by Prescribed Biomass Burning Emissions

Feb. 1, 2022

A spurious increase in the interannual variability of prescribed biomass burning (BB) emissions in the CMIP6 forcing database during the satellite era of wildfire monitoring (1997–2014) is found to lead to warming in the Northern Hemisphere extratropics in simulations with the Community Earth System Model version 2 (CESM2).

Great Plains storm intensity since the last glacial controlled by spring surface warming

Feb. 1, 2022

Mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) supply a substantial portion of warm-season rainfall to the Great Plains of North America, and they are responsible for severe weather and flooding across the central United States.
