Various ocean-climate models driven by increased
greenhouse gases and higher temperatures predict a
decline in oceanic dissolved oxygen (DO) as a result
of greater stratification, reduced ventilation below the
thermocline, and decreased solubility at higher temperatures.
Since spreading of low oxygen waters is
underway and predicted to increase, understanding
The range in the projections of future climate warming can be attributed to the inherent uncertainty in the representation of climate model parameters and processes. In this study, we assess the effect of uncertainty in climate sensitivity and ocean heat uptake on the rate of future climate change. We apply...
