Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise

  
Nature, Vol. 531, No. 7596. (31 March 2016), pp. 591-597, https://doi.org/10.1038/nature17145

Abstract

Polar temperatures over the last several million years have, at times, been slightly warmer than today, yet global mean sea level has been 6–9 metres higher as recently as the Last Interglacial (130,000 to 115,000 years ago) and possibly higher during the Pliocene epoch (about three million years ago). In both cases the Antarctic ice sheet has been implicated as the primary contributor, hinting at its future vulnerability. Here we use a model coupling ice sheet and climate dynamics—including previously underappreciated processes ...

Holocene forcing of the Indian monsoon recorded in a stalagmite from Southern Oman

  
Science, Vol. 300, No. 5626. (2003), pp. 1737-1739, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1083130

Abstract

A high-resolution oxygen-isotope record from a thorium-uranium-dated stalagmite from southern Oman reflects variations in the amount of monsoon precipitation for the periods from 10.3 to 2.7 and 1.4to 0.4thousand years before the present (ky B.P.). Between 10.3 and 8 ky B.P., decadal to centennial variations in monsoon precipitation are in phase with temperature fluctuations recorded in Greenland ice cores, indicating that early Holocene monsoon intensity is largely controlled by glacial boundary conditions. After ~8 ky B.P., monsoon precipitation decreases gradually in ...

 

Arctic tree rings as recorders of variations in light availability

  
Nature Communications, Vol. 5 (7 May 2014), https://doi.org/10.1038/ncomms4836

Abstract

Annual growth ring variations in Arctic trees are often used to reconstruct surface temperature. In general, however, the growth of Arctic vegetation is limited both by temperature and light availability, suggesting that variations in atmospheric transmissivity may also influence tree-ring characteristics. Here we show that Arctic tree-ring density is sensitive to changes in light availability across two distinct phenomena: explosive volcanic eruptions (P<0.01) and the recent epoch of global dimming (P<0.01). In each case, the greatest response is found in the ...

 

A 3,500-year tree-ring record of annual precipitation on the northeastern Tibetan Plateau

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 8. (25 February 2014), pp. 2903-2908, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1319238111

Abstract

[Significance] This paper describes the production and climatic interpretation of a tree-ring width chronology that is currently the longest, absolutely dated series produced for the northeastern Tibetan Plateau and one of the longest in the world. The method of chronology construction enables comparison of variations in precipitation totals over long timescales as well as shorter periods. Precipitation in this region during the last 50 years has been historically high—likely higher than for any equivalent length period in at least 3,500 years, ...

 

Is there memory in precipitation?

  
Nature Clim. Change, Vol. 3, No. 3. (26 March 2013), pp. 174-175, https://doi.org/10.1038/nclimate1830

Abstract

[Excerpt] Variability in the total amounts of precipitation is known to affect ecological systems, agricultural yields and human societies among various spatial and temporal scales1. Characterizing and understanding the persistence of wet and dry conditions in the distant past gives new perspectives on contemporary climate change and its causes. Such insights should also help in devising hydro-climatological adaptation and mitigation strategies for the future. The time span of systematic meteorological measurements at the global scale is, however, mainly restricted to the ...

 

Abrupt Shifts in Horn of Africa Hydroclimate Since the Last Glacial Maximum

  
Science, Vol. 342, No. 6160. (10 October 2013), pp. 843-846, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1240411

Abstract

The timing and abruptness of the initiation and termination of the Early Holocene African Humid Period are a subject of ongoing debate, with direct consequences for our understanding of abrupt climate change, paleoenvironments, and early human cultural development. Here, we provide proxy evidence from the Horn of Africa region that documents abrupt transitions into and out of the African Humid Period in northeast Africa. Similar and generally synchronous abrupt transitions at other East African sites suggest that rapid shifts in hydroclimate ...

 

The upper end of climate model temperature projections is inconsistent with past warming

  
Environmental Research Letters, Vol. 8, No. 1. (01 March 2013), 014024, https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/8/1/014024

Abstract

Climate models predict a large range of possible future temperatures for a particular scenario of future emissions of greenhouse gases and other anthropogenic forcings of climate. Given that further warming in coming decades could threaten increasing risks of climatic disruption, it is important to determine whether model projections are consistent with temperature changes already observed. This can be achieved by quantifying the extent to which increases in well mixed greenhouse gases and changes in other anthropogenic and natural forcings have already ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
