Derivation of Zero-Dimensional from One-Dimensional Climate Models
MetadataShow full item record
A ‘one-dmensional energy-balance equation involving diffusive energy transport and taking into account the ice-albedo feedback is considered. A systematic elimination of the spatial degrecs of freedom is performed. This gives rise to a zero-dimensional climate model displaying the explicit dependence of planetary albedo on plarietary temperature and on some model parameters. In the general case, the zero-dimensional model involves memory effects as well as two characteristic relaxation rates.
