MacCracken, M. C.; et al (2013): Climate response to imposed solar radiation reductions in high latitudes
MacCracken, M. C.; Shin, H.-J.; Caldeira, K.; Ban-Weiss, G. A. (2013): Climate response to imposed solar radiation reductions in high latitudes. In Earth Syst. Dynam. 4 (2), pp. 301–315. DOI 10.5194/esd-4-301-2013.
„Model simulations in which solar insolation was arbitrarily reduced poleward of 51, 61, or 71° latitude in one or both hemispheres not only cooled those regions, but also drew energy from lower latitudes, exerting a cooling influence over much of the particular hemisphere in which the reduction was imposed. The simulations, conducted using the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s CAM3.1 atmospheric model coupled to a slab ocean, indicated that high-latitude reductions in absorbed solar radiation have a significantly larger cooling influence than solar reductions of equivalent magnitude spread evenly over the Earth.„
