• Abrupt high-latitude climate events and decoupled seasonal trends during the Eemian 

      Salonen, J. Sakari; Helmens, Karin F.; Brendryen, Jo; Kuosmanen, Niina; Väliranta, Minna; Goring, Simon; Korpela, Mikko; Kylander, Malin; Philip, Annemarie; Plikk, Anna; Renssen, Hans; Luoto, Miska (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The Eemian (the Last Interglacial; ca. 129–116 thousand years ago) presents a testbed for assessing environmental responses and climate feedbacks under warmer-than-present boundary conditions. However, climate syntheses ...
    • Agreement between reconstructed and modeled boreal precipitation of the Last Interglacial 

      Scussolini, Paolo; Bakker, Pepijn; Guo, Chuncheng; Stepanek, Christian; Qiong, Zhang; Braconnot, Pascale; Cao, Jian; Guarino, Maria-Vittoria; Coumou, Dim; Prange, Matthias; Ward, Philip J.; Renssen, Hans; Kageyama, Masa; Otto-Bliesner, Bette; Aerts, Jeroen C.J.H. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The last extended time period when climate may have been warmer than today was during the Last Interglacial (LIG; ca. 129 to 120 thousand years ago). However, a global view of LIG precipitation is lacking. Here, seven new ...
    • Atmospheric circulation over Europe during the Younger Dryas 

      Rea, B. R.; Pellitero, R.; Spagnolo, M.; Hughes, P. D.; Ivy-Ochs, S.; Renssen, Hans; Ribolini, A.; Bakke, Jostein; Lukas, S.; Braithwaite, R. J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The Younger Dryas (YD) was a period of rapid climate cooling that occurred at the end of the last glaciation. Here, we present the first palaeoglacier-derived reconstruction of YD precipitation across Europe, determined ...
    • Coupling of VAMPERS within iLOVECLIM: experiments during the LGM and Last Deglaciation 

      Kitover, Danielle C; Renssen, Hans; van Balen, Ronald; Vandenberghe, Jef; Roche, Didier M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The VAMPERS (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Permafrost Snow Model) has been coupled within iLOVECLIM, an earth system model. This advancement allows the thermal coupling between permafrost and climate to be examined from a ...
    • Modelling of the energy budgets at Imingfjell, Norway, using the Community Land Model (CLM4.5) 

      Vasiakina, Anastasiia (Master thesis, 2020)
      Mountains are one of the most sensitive areas to climate change as they are biodiversity hotspots. One of the main problems in studying climate change for mountainous territories is the lack of meteorological data due to ...
    • Modelling the vegetation response to the 8.2 ka BP cooling event in Europe and Northern Africa 

      Li, Huan; Renssen, Hans; Roche, Didier M.; Miller, Paul A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The 8.2 ka bp cooling event is assumed to be the most clearly marked abrupt climate event in the Holocene at northern mid‐ to high latitudes. In this study, we simulate the vegetation responses to the 8.2 ka bp climate ...
    • Prevalence and Seasonal Variation of Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus (TBEV) in Questing Ticks from Kilen, Mandal, in Norway 

      Häusler, Kamilla (Master thesis, 2021)
      Flått-bårne sykdommer som Skogflåttencefalitt virus (TBEV) har vist en økende trend i Europa de siste tiårene og er allerede ansett som en stor trussel mot både dyre- og folkehelsen i flere land. Dette viruset er det mest ...
    • The impact of moisture on the albedo of lichens 

      Øien, Martine (Master thesis, 2021)
      Lichens cover about 8% of the Earth’s land surface. They are an important forage for reindeer, but they also have an impact on the microclimate of their surroundings. Lichens have a relatively high albedo, giving them a ...
