The article presents a study which explored the mid-Pliocene and pre-indusrial atmosphere general circulation models (AGCM) simulations, with Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM-L). The study evaluated he potential uncertainties in the analysis of climate anomalies in the mid-Pliocene period. Results showed that the uncertainties in mid-Pliocene climate anomaly analyses are large in terms of regional scale, but small on a global scale.

    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...

    Effective climate sensitivity is often assumed to be constant (if uncertain), but some previous studies of general circulation model (GCM) simulations have found it varying as the simulation progresses. This complicates the fitting of simple models to such simulations, as well as having...
