Collaborative Research: P2C2--Orbital Timescale Climate Variability: Simulation Of Mechanisms And Comparison With Paleoclimate Observations

Project Details

Description

Funding is provided to examine the tropical response to orbital forcing. Specifically, the researchers plan to address three science questions: 1) How does the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) vary on orbital timescales 2) How does the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) respond to orbital forcing and 3) What mechanisms control tropical temperatures on orbital timescales The broader impacts include cross-institutional collaboration, participation of NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in a paleoclimate modeling exercise, and the training of a graduate student and post doctoral scholar.
