The Brewer-Dobson Circulation during the Last Glacial Maximum
(Geophysical Research Letter, 2020)
The Brewer-Dobson circulation (BDC) during the last glacial maximum (LGM) is investigated in simulations using the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model version 6 (WACCM6). We examine vertical mass fluxes, age of stratospheric air, and the transformed Eulerian mean stream function and find that the modeled annual-mean BDC ...
Climate responses to changes in Arctic land surface properties
Arctic vegetation is known to influence Arctic surface temperatures through albedo. However, it is less clear how plant evaporative resistance and albedo independently influence surface climate at high latitudes. We use surface properties derived from two common Arctic tree types to simulate the climate response to a change ...

Supporting data for Sokol and Hartmann (2020), Tropical Anvil Clouds: Radiative Driving Towards a Preferred State
The evolution of anvil clouds detrained from deep convective systems has important implications for the tropical energy balance and is thought to be shaped by radiative heating. We use combined radar-lidar observations and a radiative transfer model to investigate the influence of radiative heating on anvil cloud altitude, ...
