ABSTRACT
The article discusses the experimental design and initial results relevant to the simulation of the mid-Pliocene warm period (MPWP) using MIROC, an atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (AOGCM). It relates that simulating MPWP is part of the Pliocene Model Intercomparison Project (PlioMIP). It identifies MPWP as the period in earth's history in which global increase in temperature had reached the predicted magnitude for the late 21st century duration.
