Record #117917:

The strength of the nordic heat pump / Wallace S. Broecker.

Title: The strength of the nordic heat pump / Wallace S. Broecker.
Author(s): Broecker, Wallace S.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Last deglaciation : absolute and radiocarbon chronologies. (1992.),
Abstract: Author explains and discusses his thesis that heat released by Atlantic Ocean's conveyer circulation maintains relatively mild climate of northern Europe, and that this system has run steadily for last 9 ka. During glacial times, large temperature changes were due to conveyer and associated heat pump turning on and off. Atlantic's circulation can assume two modes of operation, that characterized by strong thermohaline circulation akin to conveyer and that devoid of thermohaline circulation.
