ENSO Theory - Part I
Aerosol-induced interhemispheric asymmetry in climate change
Dynamics of the Leeuwin Current System
The coastal circulation off Western Australia differs from most other eastern boundary current systems in that its main current, the Leeuwin Current (LC) is directed southward towards the pole. In my presentation, I will discuss simple analytic models to explain the unique structure of the Leeuwin Current system. In these models, the poleward LC occurs because of interaction of the meridional surface density gradient in the Southern Indian Ocean with the continental slope.
Modeling and understanding of Quaternary glacial cycles
It is now generally accepted that, as postulated by the Milankovitch theory, Earth’s orbital variations represent the major forcing of Quaternary climate variability. However, the mechanism of glacial cycles still not fully understood. Among major scientific challenges remains the understanding of the strong link between global ice volume and atmospheric CO2 concentration.
Covariation of deep Southern Ocean oxygenation and atmospheric CO2 through the last ice age
We are pleased to announce the 2017 International Workshop on ENSO complexity at the IBS Center for Climate Physics at Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea.
The workshop will be held from October 16th - 20th, 2017.
