Evaluating forcings in an ensemble of paleo-climate models

Abstract:

This thesis presents the initial results from climateprediction.net's paleo-experiments. A grand ensemble of paleo-climate models was successfully designed and executed using this distributed computing approach. The physical parameters, initial conditions and boundary conditions were perturbed in two sets of experiments distributed to the general public. The paleo - focus period is the mid-Holocene, i.e. ~6000 years before present, due to its relative climatic stability and the a...
