A Climate Model Intercomparison for the Younger Dryas and its Implications for Paleoclimatic Data Collection Academic Article uri icon


  • Some hypotheses and feedback mechanisms are quantitatively investigated using several energy balance climate models as well as general circulation model experiments. All sets of results show that there are substantial seasonal and regional differences in the climatic response for these particular forcings. Because the climatic signals are so different from season to season and from place to place, these model results help to suggest a priority list for further research. -after Authors
