Last updated:
30 September 2016
The Arctic has become the focus of many new investigations and studies across a number of disciplines. In many cases, this research is integrating diverse new data sets, observations, and modeling, and making connections among and across the biosphere, oceans, atmospheres, space, and geophysical environments. These papers include historical and new research on the Arctic and represent the following AGU journals: Earth’s Future, Earth and Space Science, Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems (G-Cubed), Geophysical Research Letters, Global Biogeochemical Cycles, JAMES (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems), JGR: Oceans, JGR: Atmospheres, JGR: Solid Earth, JGR: Space Physics, JGR: Biogeosciences, JGR: Earth’s Surface, Reviews of Geophysics, Space Weather, and Water Resources Research.

AGU Commentaries

This Special Collection brings together commentaries published across all of AGU's journals. These discuss significant research, current research trends, science policy, and other topics of general interest, and are invited by the editors of each journal. Each commentary is freely available.

The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology Earth System Model

1 December 2013
B. Stevens
This special section is devoted to the scientific description of the MPI-ESM, the Earth System Model developed by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. The MPI has a long history of developing high-quality coupled models. This newest generation of our coupled model is the first to systematically incorporate the carbon cycle and represent dynamic vegetation, but equally important is its improved representation of basic physical processes. The papers in this section present a description of the MPI-ESM, and an initial evaluation---including the development of several novel configurations and features.
