Abrupt Climate Change. Mechanisms, Patterns, and Impacts by Harunur Rashid, Leonid Polyak, Ellen Mosley-Thompson

By Harunur Rashid, Leonid Polyak, Ellen Mosley-Thompson

Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.Abrupt weather switch: Mechanisms, styles, and Impacts brings jointly a various team of paleoproxy documents comparable to ice cores, marine sediments, terrestrial (lakes and speleothems) records, and paired ocean-atmosphere weather versions to rfile fresh advances in knowing the mechanisms of abrupt weather alterations. because the discovery of the Dansgaard-Oeschger occasions in Greenland ice cores and the next discovery in their modern occasions within the marine sediments of the North Atlantic, the hunt for those abrupt, millennial-scale occasions around the globe has intensified, and consequently, the variety of paleoclimatic files chronicling such occasions has elevated. the amount highlights comprise discussions of files of earlier weather variability, meridional overturning...

2011]. Ruzmaikin and Feynman [this volume] investigate a quasiperiodic 1500 year climate oscillation during the Holocene and its relation to the AMOC. They employed a simple conceptual model to simulate the forcing mechanism for this oscillation. The analysis of six paleoclimatic records from the Atlantic Ocean and sunspot numbers using wavelet and empirical mode decomposition methods allowed the authors to overcome the leaks from one mode to another, a common problem in conventional band-pass filtering.
