• 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 ...
    • 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 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 ...
    • The PMIP4 contribution to CMIP6 - Part 2: Two interglacials, scientific objective and experimental design for Holocene and Last Interglacial simulations 

      Otto-Bliesner, Bette; Braconnot, Pascale; Harrison, Sandy P.; Lunt, Daniel J; Abe-Ouchi, Ayako; Albani, Samuel; Bartlein, Patrick J; Capron, Emilie; Carlson, Anders E; Dutton, Andrea; Fischer, Hubertus; Goelzer, Heilko; Govin, Aline; Haywood, Alan M.; Joos, Fortunat; Legrande, Allegra N.; Lipscomb, William H.; Lohmann, Gerrit; Mahowald, Natalie M.; Nehrbass-Ahles, Christoph; Pausata, Francesco S. Rocco; Peterschmitt, Jean-Yves; Phipps, Steven J; Renssen, Hans; Zhang, Qiong (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Two interglacial epochs are included in the suite of Paleoclimate Modeling Intercomparison Project PMIP4) simulations in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6). The experimental protocols for simulations of the ...
