Impacts of surface boundary conditions on regional climate model simulations of European climate during the Last Glacial Maximum doi

We examine the influences of North Atlantic sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and vegetation on regional climate simulations over Europe during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). Simulated regional temperature and precipitation patterns over Europe are considerably improved when using revised SSTs based on proxy data. Likewise, the simulated permafrost is more accurately reproduced with the SST modifications. These improvements are partially related to the changed regional atmospheric circulation due to the...

Preliminary comparison of geological climate proxies with GCM palaeoclimate simulations for selected locations in North Africa

Our knowledge of palaeoclimate history is mainly based on climate proxies, which can infer past climatic conditions. In North Africa, sediment proxies such as palygorskite and the kaolinite-to-chlorite ratio are usually transported as dust components. Their relative increase or decrease is indicative of an arid or humid condition respectively. Another way to understand palaeoclimate conditions is by the use of coupled atmospheric models within the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project Phase III...
