Exploring dynamic shifts in North Atlantic climate using CESMv1.2 time slice simulations of MIS-11c B. R. Crow, M. Prange, and M. Schulz

Short summary
To better understand the climate conditions which lead to extensive melting of the Greenland ice sheet, we used climate models to reconstruct the climate conditions of the warmest period of the last 800 000 years, which was centered around 410 000 years ago. Surprisingly, we found that atmospheric circulation changes may have acted to reduce the melt of the ice sheet rather than enhance it, despite the extensive warmth of the time.
