We present a 6‐year simulation of the ice age atmosphere using the T21 Atmospheric General Circulation Model (AGCM) of the European Centre for Medium‐Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
The surface fields are the test data derived from the geological record on land, and they define the upper boundary conditions for simulating the glacial ocean. Model results are shown for the mean annual surface fields of temperature, wind, and precipitation.
The wind strength increased in mid‐latitudes and decreased in tropical trade wind regions. Precipitation did not change significantly in the global average; however, precipitation decreased over land and increased over the ocean. Most of the difference patterns between the present conditions and the ice age climate were statistically significant. The simulated surface climatology is roughly consistent with the paleogeological evidence
Wonder if that has played any part with the fires starting and the drought?
Many of the fires have been lit deliberately. Many have also been started by dry lightning and, as a result of super hot days, spontaneous combustion.
The current fire conditions were forecast last year in about September. Let that sink in for a moment.
There was (is) a Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) event that has forced a collapse of late spring & early summer rains. The SSW has also brought temperatures that are well above average, to say the least. We knew this was coming, it was forecast and modelled, the data is all there if you'd care to look for it. We also know that this event has NOTHING to do with Human Induced Climate Change, because we know that SSWs are naturally occurring events.
