Interhemispheric Asymmetry of Warming in an Eddy Permitting Coupled Sector Model

Hutchinson, David; England, Matthew; Hogg, Andrew; Snow, Kate


Climate model projections and observations show a faster rate of warming in the Northern Hemisphere (NH) than the Southern Hemisphere (SH). This asymmetry is partly due to faster rates of warming over the land than the ocean, and partly due to the ocean circulation redistributing heat toward the NH. This study examines the interhemispheric warming asymmetry in an intermediate complexity coupled climate model with eddy-permitting (0.25°) ocean resolution, and results are compared with a similar...[Show more]
