  1. 1. Northern Permafrost Region Soil Carbon Dynamics since the Last Glacial Maximum : a terrestrial component in the glacial to interglacial carbon cycle

    Author : Amelie Lindgren; Gustaf Hugelius; Peter Kuhry; Fortunat Joos; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soil organic carbon; Permafrost; Peat; Loess; Vegetation; Biome reconstruction; Last Glacial Maximum; Deglaciation; Glacial-interglacial cycle; Carbon cycle; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : At the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), after ~100,000 years of relatively cold temperatures and progressively lower atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations, CO2 levels reached ~180 ppm, which is less than half of what we see today in a much warmer world (~400 ppm). Although much of this increase since the LGM is due to human-induced emissions, about 100 ppm of this increase can be attributed to natural variations seen over glacial to interglacial cycles.

  3. 3. Paleoglaciology of Shaluli Shan, southeastern Tibetan Plateau

    Author : Ping Fu; Arjen Stroeven; Lewis Owen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Paleoglaciology; Tibetan Plateau; geomorphological mapping; cosmogenic nuclide; Last Glacial Maximum; glacial erosion; basal thermal regime; paleoglaciologi; Tibetanska platån; geomorfologisk kartering; kosmogena isotoper; senaste glaciala maximat; glacial erosion; subglacial temperatur; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : Reconstructing the paleoglaciation of the Tibetan Plateau is critical to understanding linkages between regional climate changes and global climate changes. This work focuses on the paleoglaciology of the Shaluli Shan Mountain area in the southeastern Tibetan Plateau. READ MORE

  4. 4. The thermohaline circulation during the Last Glacial Maximum and in the Present-Day climate

    Author : Maxime Ballarotta; Kristofer Döös; David Stevens; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ocean model; circulation; LGM; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The thermohaline circulation (THC) corresponds to the large time- and spatial-scales ocean circulation associated with the transport of heat and salt, and is known to be an important factor controlling the climate variability. The large scales involved in the THC make it difficult to observe, and therefore the synergy of numerical models and climate proxy reconstructions is particularly relevant to study the characteristics of this circulation in the present and past climates.

  5. 5. Asian monsoon over mainland Southeast Asia in the past 25 000 years

    Author : Akkaneewut Chabangborn; Barbara Wohlfarth; Karen Kohfeld; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Asian monsoon; ITCZ; palaeo-vegetation; palaeoclimate; lake sediment; Last Glacial Maximum; Holocene; Marine Geoscience; marin geovetenskap;

    Abstract : The objective of this research is to interpret high-resolution palaeo-proxy data sets to understand the Asian summer monsoon variability in the past. This was done by synthesizing published palaeo-records from the Asian monsoon region, model simulation comparisons, and analysing new lake sedimentary records from northeast Thailand. READ MORE
