Latest Science Highlights

What happened to the ocean circulation when all this meltwater entered the ocean at that time of deglaciation? This is what Marson et al. (2015) discuss in their study published last October in Climate Dynamics.

A review that summarizes recent progress in dynamical studies of regional climate change, and highlights outstanding issues.

Time-mean and trends for the period 1948-2007 are analysed in a suite of global ocean-sea ice models forced with CORE-II forcing, focusing on the ACC, MOC, water masses and sea-ice evolution.
