Climate Model Inadequacies for Sea Ice

Via CO2science.org Near the start of the current century, Holland (2001) wrote that with respect to contemporary state-of-the-art global climate models, “some physical processes are absent from the models,” while noting that in light of the coarse-resolution grids employed by the models, “some physical processes are ill resolved” and that others are actually “missing from…

Analyzing ocean mixing reveals insight on climate

Eddies pull carbon emissions into deep ocean, new model simulates complex process From DOE/LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL LABORATORY LOS ALAMOS, N.M., June 24, 2015–Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have developed a computer model that clarifies the complex processes driving ocean mixing in the vast eddies that swirl across hundreds of miles of open ocean. “The…

Lamenting the Double ITCZ Bias in CMIP5 Climate Models

From CO2 Science, something that Willis Eschebach holds dear as a regulating mechanism: The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone In what must be a difficult acknowledgement to make, Oueslati and Bellon (2015) write that “the double intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) bias still affects all the models that participate in CMIP5,” – i.e. the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project,…

Another Model -vs- Reality problem – National Weather Offices: Canada, A Case Study With National And Global Implications.

Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball An article by Lord Monckton outlined his involvements with Thomas Karl, Director of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville NC. It arose from a publication by Karl and others regarding global temperatures. The article, was apparently designed to influence the public debate as the COP21 climate conference in Paris…

Climate modeler Matthew England still ignoring reality – claims IPCC models will eventually win

From the University of New South Wales and  ‘models versus reality‘ department comes this claim from alarmist Matthew England, whose “say anything” track record isn’t at all impressive, and looks to be an obsession with “being right” rather than doing careful science, for example: December 2012:  England accuses sceptics of lying when they say the…
