Thesis Title

The role of oceans in the land/ocean contrast


Nicholas was investigated the land-ocean warming contrast. The thermal inertia of the ocean causes higher amplitude warming and cooling over land than ocean. However the ocean is also able to modulate and amplify land temperatures. Observational and climate model data was used to determine what feedbacks may have been responsible and a coupled ocean-atmosphere climate model was used to test these mechanisms.
