"Exploring Global Warming with Climate Models of Various Complexity"
by Syukuro Manabe (Princeton University)
Dr. Manabe is a Senior Meteorologist at Princeton University, and one of the world’s leading scientists in numerical modeling of climate and climate change. For more than five decades Dr. Manabe worked at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey, where he pioneered the use of computers to simulate global climate change and natural climate variations. These breakthroughs have helped provide the foundation Read more about Harvard Climate Seminar
We argue for a pervasive link between cold climates and polar ocean stratification. In both the Subarctic North Pacific and the Antarctic Zone of the Southern Ocean, ice ages were marked by low productivity. The accumulated evidence from sediment cores points to an increase in density stratification that reduced the supply of nutrients from the ocean interior into the sunlit surface in both Read more about Climate Seminar: "The Polar Oceans during the Ice Ages"
