Projekt

During the last deglaciation large amounts of freshwater, emanating from the huge continental ice sheets over the Northern Hemisphere, entered the North Atlantic. This way the hydrological balance in the North Atlantic was affected and thus may provide an analog for the evolution of future climate. Hence the aim of my project "Deglacial changes in deep Atlantic stratification" is to model changes in the Atlantic deepwater circulation during the last deglaciation with respect towards a better understanding of interactions between water mass changes and the AMOC. For this purpose, an isotope-enabled model - the MITgcm - will be used.
