Air-sea interactions during glacial Heinrich events

'Heinrich events' - massive iceberg discharges from Northern Hemisphere ice sheets during the last ice age - coincided with cold periods and subsequent abrupt warmings on the Northern Hemisphere. Climate reconstructions suggest that the associated freshwater pulses caused a temporary collapse of the...

The influence of glacial boundary conditions on the climate system during...

The aim of this thesis is to explore and understand some major climate mechanisms that were responsible for atmospheric and oceanic changes during the LGM (21,000 years ago). A coupled global atmosphere ocean model of intermediate complexity is used to study the influence of glacial boundary conditions...
