North Atlantic variability and the carbon cycle
The North Atlantic is a key driver of global and regional climate, through its important role in Northward heat transport, its intense sequestration of CO2, and its influence on the regional atmospheric circulation and therefore weather. In this talk I will examine the drivers and impacts of variability in the North Atlantic over the past millennium, since the industrial revolution, and into the future. The talk will focus on the mechanisms of both physical climate and carbon-cycle change, and how these can inform us about potential future impacts.
This event is open to all UoB staff and students.
