    • Changes in the Tropical Lapse Rate due to Entrainment and Their Impact on Climate Sensitivity 

      Bao, JiaweiORCIDiD; Stevens, BjornORCIDiD; Kluft, LukasORCIDiD; Jiménez‐de‐la‐Cuesta, DiegoORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2021-09-16)
      The tropical temperature in the free troposphere deviates from a theoretical moist‐adiabat. The overall deviations are attributed to the entrainment of dry surrounding air. The deviations gradually approach zero in the ...
    • Countergradient variation concealed adaptive responses to temperature increase in Daphnia from heated lakes 

      Dziuba, Marcin KrzysztofORCIDiD; Kuczyński, LechosławORCIDiD; Wejnerowski, ŁukaszORCIDiD; Cerbin, SlawekORCIDiD; Wolinska, JustynaORCIDiD (Limnology and Oceanography, 2020-12-21)
      To test the general assumption that global warming will induce body size reduction in aquatic organisms, we used a system of lakes continually heated for six decades by warm water discharge from power plants. Their temperature ...
    • Future haze events in Beijing, China: When climate warms by 1.5 and 2.0°C 

      Liu, Cuiping; Zhang, Feng; Miao, LijuanORCIDiD; Lei, Yadong; Yang, Quan (International Journal of Climatology, 2019)
      China is the world's second-largest economy, and its capital Beijing has been suffering from severe haze pollution in recent years. However, how the winter haze events in Beijing vary under different global warming scenarios ...
    • Gradual warming prior to the end‐Permian mass extinction 

      Gliwa, JanaORCIDiD; Wiedenbeck, Michael; Schobben, Martin; Ullmann, Clemenz V.; Kiessling, WolfgangORCIDiD; Ghaderi, Abbas; Struck, Ulrich; Korn, DieterORCIDiD (Palaeontology, 2022-09-06)
      The biggest known mass extinction in the history of animal life occurred at the Permian–Triassic boundary and has often been linked to global warming. Previous studies have suggested that a geologically rapid (<40 kyr) ...
    • How close are we to 1.5 degC or 2 degC of global warming? 

      Marotzke, JochemORCIDiD; Milinski, Sebastian; Jones, Christopher D. (Weather, 2022-03-28)
    • Poleward Shift of the Major Ocean Gyres Detected in a Warming Climate 

      Yang, HuORCIDiD; Lohmann, GerritORCIDiD; Krebs-Kanzow, UtaORCIDiD; Ionita, MonicaORCIDiD; Shi, XiaoxuORCIDiD; Sidorenko, DimitryORCIDiD; Gong, XunORCIDiD; Chen, XueenORCIDiD; Gowan, Evan J.ORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2020)
      Recent evidence shows that wind-driven ocean currents, like the western boundary currents, are strongly affected by global warming. However, due to insufficient observations both on temporal and spatial scales, the impact ...
    • Sea Ice Targeted Geoengineering Can Delay Arctic Sea Ice Decline but not Global Warming 

      Zampieri, LorenzoORCIDiD; Goessling, Helge F.ORCIDiD (Earth's Future, 2019)
      To counteract global warming, a geoengineering approach that aims at intervening in the Arctic ice-albedo feedback has been proposed. A large number of wind-driven pumps shall spread seawater on the surface in winter to ...
    • Stronger Global Warming on Nonrainy Days in Observations From China 

      Du, MuyeORCIDiD; Kleidon, AxelORCIDiD; Sun, FubaoORCIDiD; Renner, MaikORCIDiD; Liu, WenbinORCIDiD (Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, 2020)
      Nonrainy days have rather different hydrologic and radiative conditions than rainy days, but few investigations considered how these different conditions contribute to the observed global warming. Here, we show that global ...
