Prof. Alan Haywood is currently Professor of Palaeoclimate Modelling within the Institute of Climate & Atmospheric Science and the Earth Surface Science Institute, School of Earth & Environment, University of Leeds. He earned Ph.D. in numerical climate modelling and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction in 2001 from the University of Reading and have worked on modelling past climate and environmental change since that time. His research interests are multidisciplinary as well as holistic. They are focused on the reconstruction of Earth's environmental/climatic history, the assessment of our ability to model it, and the use of this information to examine potential scenarios for future climate change. Some highlights of his research include: (i) Exploration of the importance of vegetation climate feedbacks in palaeoclimate modelling exercises; (ii) Examination of ocean temperature responses during past greenhouse climates; (iii) Prediction of ENSO behaviour during past warm intervals; (iv) Reconstruction of Cretaceous climate dynamics using a limited area climate model; and (v) Assessment of equator to pole temperature gradients during the past and implied changes in atmospheric versus oceanic heat transport.
In this talk, Prof. Alan Haywood will introduce the latest results from the Pliocene Model Intercomparison Project (PlioMIP). The PlioMIP is a co-ordinated international climate modelling initiative to study and understand climate and environments of the Late Pliocene (~ 3 million years ago), and their potential relevance in the context of future climate change. PlioMIP operates under the umbrella of the Palaeoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP), which examines multiple intervals in Earth history, the consistency of model predictions in simulating these intervals and their ability to reproduce geological climate archives. The PlioMIP project was initiated in 2008 and is closely aligned with the US Geological Survey Initiative known as PRISM (Pliocene Research Interpretation and Synoptic Mapping).
