The article presents the computer simulations for pre-industrial and mid-pliocene with Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM-L). It uses the low resolution version of the (NorESM-L) to simulate the pre-industrial and the mid-Pliocene climate. Comparison of the simulation with observations demonstrates that NorESM-L simulates a realistic pre-industrial climate.

    Given the growing evidence for megalakes in the geological record, assessing their impact on climate and vegetation is important for the validation of palaeoclimate simulations and therefore the accuracy of model-data comparison in lacustrine environments. Megalake Chad (MLC) occurrences are...
