    One of the clearest manifestations of ongoing global climate change is the dramatic retreat and thinning of the Arctic sea-ice cover. While all state-of-the-art climate models consistently reproduce the sign of these ...
  • Benefits of Increasing the Model Resolution for the Seasonal Forecast Quality in EC-Earth 

    Prodhomme, Chloé; Batté, L.; Massonnet, François; Davini, P.; Bellprat, Omar; Guemas, Virginie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-05)

    Resolution in climate models is thought to be an important factor for advancing seasonal prediction capability. To test this hypothesis, seasonal ensemble reforecasts are conducted over 1993–2009 with the European community ...
  • Quantifying climate feedbacks in polar regions 

    Goosse, Hugues; Kay, Jennifer E.; Armour, Kyle C.; Bodas-Salcedo, Alejandro; Chepfer, Helene; Docquier, David; Jonko, Alexandra; Kushner, Paul J.; Lecomte, Olivier; Massonnet, François; Park, Hyo-Seok; Pithan, Felix; Svensson, Gunilla; Vancoppenolle, Martin (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-05-15)

    The concept of feedback is key in assessing whether a perturbation to a system is amplified or damped by mechanisms internal to the system. In polar regions, climate dynamics are controlled by both radiative and non-radiative ...
  • Record low northern hemisphere sea ice extent in March 2015 

    Fuckar, Neven S.; Massonnet, François; Guemas, Virginie; Garcia-Serrano, Javier; Omar, Bellprat; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J.; Acosta, Mario (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-01)

    The record low Northern Hemisphere (NH) winter sea ice maximum stemmed from a strong interannual surface anomaly in the Pacific sector, but it would not have been reached without long-term climate change.
  • Relationships between Arctic sea ice drift and strength modelled by NEMO-LIM3.6

    Sea ice cover and thickness have substantially decreased in the Arctic Ocean since the beginning of the satellite era. As a result, sea ice strength has been reduced, allowing more deformation and fracturing and leading ...

  • The Role of Arctic Sea Ice and Sea Surface Temperatures on the Cold 2015 February Over North America 

    Bellprat, Omar; Massonnet, François; Garcia-Serrano, Javier; Fuckar, Neven S.; Guemas, Virginie; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco J. (American Meteorological Society, 2016-12-01)

    The cold spell of February 2015 in North America was predominantly internally generated; reduced Arctic sea ice and anomalous sea surface temperatures may have contributed in establishing and sustaining the anomalous flow.
