Abstract/Summary

In this study three experiments were carried out with the ECHAM3 model at T42 resolution. The objectives of these experiments were firstly to analyze the effect of a North Atlantic Ocean cooled to Younger Dryas temperatures on the atmosphere under present conditions and secondly to simulate a Younger Dryas climate to improve the insight into mechanisms responsible for cooling during the Younger Dryas and moreover to find out if the Younger Dryas was a global or a regional event.
