European Geophysical Society 26th General Assembly Nice, France, 22-26 April 2002

Session NP 3:

Climate Models and their nonlinear behaviour

Convenor: Gerrit Lohmann (,
Co-Convenor: Henk Dijkstra (

  The emphasis of this session is on nonlinear behaviour
as simulated by a hierarchy of climate models.
Contributions are welcome addressing complex phenomena such as
stochastic resonance, chaos, control, timescale interactions,
theory of large deviations, nonlinear resonances, phase-locking,
regime transitions and catastrophic events.
