A Two-Dimensional Climate Model Useful in Ice Age Applications Academic Article uri icon


  • The present model which is easily and efficiently solved should prove useful for future studies coupling a simple climate model with a deluxe ice sheet model. The climate model already has the property that glaciers have the potential for growing in the right places and with a reasonable sensitivity (especially with the assistance of CO2 changes). The model in its present form has some rich mathematical structure associated with geography leading to abrupt transitions in ice area as parameters are slowly varied. -from Authors
