THESIS: Climate Change: Polar amplification and impacts during the 21st century

Past changes in temperature were consistently stronger toward the poles than at lower latitudes. Climate projections for the 21st century show this too. The polar amplification predicted by current climate models is too weak when compared to geologic records of warmer climate periods, implying gaps in our understanding of important processes in the climate system. Our aim is to quantify the role of potential processes by analyzing atmospheric and oceanic heat transports, changes in local radiation balance through changes in e.g. polar clouds, ocean-ice shelf interactions, and temperature and biogeochemical feedbacks.
