Summary
Abstract: GISS MODEL II NINE LAYER PALEOCLIMATE SIMULATIONS
There are a number of different modern control runs for the paloeclimate
experiments. It is important to be sure that the correct control run is used
when evaluating the paleoclimate simulations. 903 is the standard 8x10 18K
simulation with ice sheet configuration, sea surface temperatures, and sea ice
from CLIMAP (1981), 18K orbital forcing, ... View entire text
