Polar amplification in past and future climates

PI: Masa Kageyama
Institution: Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement
We analyse the PMIP Last Glacial Maximum and Mid-Holocene simulations in comparison to the stabilised 2 and 4xCO2 simulations, with a particular focus on the temperature changes at the poles and their relationship to global temperature changes. For the past climates, we also compare the models' ability to simulate the signal recorded in ice-cores.
