In parallel, the Mediterranean Sea is a laboratory basin in providing analogues of the above global processes relevant to climate dynamics. They include the Mediterranean thermohaline circulation with its own `conveyor belt'; intermediate and deep water mass formation and transformations, dispersion and mixing.

We present an atmosphere–ocean regional climate model for the Mediterranean basin, called the PROTHEUS system, composed by the regional climate model RegCM3 as the atmospheric component and by a regional configuration of the MITgcm model as the oceanic component.

The model is applied to an area encompassing the Mediterranean Sea and compared to a stand-alone version of its. Robinson A.R., Golnaraghi M.

Introduction [2] The Mixed Layer (ML) is one of the most recurrent features of the ocean and its variability strongly influences the upper ocean physics [Pickard and Emery, ].It is also where major biological and chemical processes occur, which have a strong influence on the Earth's climate [Falkowski et al., ].Various attempts to produce a global scale estimation of the Mixed.

A regional atmosphere-ocean coupled model (the Protheus system) has been used to estimate sea level rise in the Mediterranean basin. A present climate simulation has been forced by ERA40 covering. B.N. Shuman, in Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences, Abstract.

Understanding past climate dynamics first requires reconstructing climate history in order to evaluate the important processes that shaped Earth's history – and that may shape the future.

Here, approaches used to reconstruct paleoclimates are introduced. The approaches rely on Earth processes that.

During Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) Legs andsapropels were recovered both in the western and eastern Mediterranean. This obliges to a reassessment of the previous studies focused on sapropels from only the eastern Mediterranean, and to consider the changes which occurred in the Mediterranean climate but also in the water characteristics both in the Atlantic and in the.

1. Introduction. Modeling the Mediterranean Sea is a challenging problem. Mediterranean Sea circulation is highly variable affected by a relatively large range of processes at several interacting spatial scales: basin, sub-basin and mesoscale (Robinson and Golnaraghi, ).Complexity and scales arise from the multiple driving forces, such as the ocean–atmosphere.

Robinson (eds.), NATO ASI Series, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, The weather and climate manipulation is examined as an optimal control problem for the earth climate system, which is considered as a complex adaptive dynamical system.

Weather and climate manipulations are actually amorphous operations. Since their objectives are usually formulated vaguely, the expected results are fairly unpredictable and uncertain.

Global examples in the world ocean are provided and talked about in the lectures. In parallel, the Mediterranean Sea is a laboratory basin in providing analogues of the above worldwide processes associated to local climate dynamics.

They embrace the Mediterranean thermohaline circulation with its private `conveyor belt'; intermediate and deep. As discussed in Chapter 2, the Younger Dryas is the most studied example of an abrupt change and provides insights about possible many ways the Younger Dryas serves as a defining event that embodies the notion of abrupt climate change.

Heinrich and Dansgaard/Oeschger events are generally thought to be governed by physical laws that are closely related to those involved in the. Ocean Processes in Climate Dynamics: Global and Mediterranean Examples. Springer. ISBN Understanding the dynamics of large-scale ocean circulation is crucial for prediction of low frequency climate variability and future climate change, especially abrupt climate change.

Large-scale ocean dynamics also have important influence on the uptake of heat and carbon dioxide by the ocean, and global biogeochemical cycling. by Judith Curry Peter Webster's magnum opus is now published: Dynamics of the Tropical Atmosphere and Oceans.

From the blurb on : "This book presents a unique and comprehensive view of the fundamental dynamical and thermodynamic principles underlying the large circulations of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system Dynamics of The Tropical Atmosphere and.

Climate is the long-term average of weather, typically averaged over a period of 30 years. More rigorously, it denotes the mean and variability of meteorological variables over a time spanning from months to millions of years. Some of the meteorological variables that are commonly measured are temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, and precipitation.

Numerical weather prediction (NWP) uses mathematical models of the atmosphere and oceans to predict the weather based on current weather conditions. Though first attempted in the s, it was not until the advent of computer simulation in the s that numerical weather predictions produced realistic results.

A number of global and regional forecast models are run in different countries. The Strait of Gibraltar links the Atlantic Ocean directly to the Mediterranean Sea. This direct linkage creates certain unique flow and wave patterns. These unique patterns are created due to the interaction of various regional and global evaporative forces, water temperatures, tidal forces, and wind forces.

Abstract [1] Open-sea convection occurring in the northwestern Mediterranean basin (NWMED) is at the origin of the formation of Western Mediterranean Deep Water (WMDW), one of the main Mediterranean water masses. During winter –, a spectacular convection event occurred, observed by several experimental oceanographers.

It was associated with an exceptionally large. [1] Maps of the remotely sensed Absolute Dynamic Topography (ADT) and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) over the Eastern Mediterranean in the period June to June show a dramatic and sudden change in the sea surface structure.

This change, which is presumably associated with the relaxation of the Eastern Mediterranean Transient (EMT), had taken place by the middle of. The focus of the course is on the processes that control the climate of the planet.

In this case study, we’ll focus on three very different threats to the Mediterranean ecosystem: a chemical pollutant (mercury), invasive alien species, and the physical impacts of the changing. Upwelling is a process in which deep, cold water rises toward the surface.

Typically, water that rises to the surface as a result of upwelling is colder and rich in nutrients. This is the reason. My recent book, 'Brave New Arctic: The Untold Story of the Melting North North', is a good example of these efforts. keywords.
