Description

The PIK-project AO-Quest is concerned with the study of mechanisms of atmosphere-ocean dynamics in climate changes in past and future. It thus complements the carbon cycle (C-Quest) and continental ice (Ice-Quest) components of the Quest group of projects. Areas of study include climate variations in the past (glacial, holocene, paleocene-eocene thermal maximum, etc.) as well as future anthropogenic climate changes which estabilshes a natural link to the Integration project of TOPIK 2. The main tools used in AO-Quest are the CLIMBER model family (2, 3a, 3) and simple conceptual models.
