Suggestions for paperlist subjects

Posted by Ari Jokimäki on January 7, 2010

Ok, that’s it, I’ve run out of paperlist subjects…

…well, seriously, I do have lot of ideas for new subjects for paperlists, but I thought that now would be a good time to ask you about the subjects you would like to see searched for papers. Post your suggestions here. I won’t make any promises, but I do like to keep my readers happy, so I imagine that most of the suggestions here will result in a list of papers in the future.

Some subjects I already have more or less in the works:
Glacial terminations
Theory of CO2 absorption properties
Lapse rate feedback
Ice-albedo feedback
Other feedbacks
CO2 emissions from mankind
laboratory measurements of other GHGs
Temperatures of other planets

    No idea, your lists set is pretty good. From those that you mention I’d be more interested in feedbacks.

    Maybe something on the role of internal variability, I don’t know.

    CO2 measurements in Ice

    Black carbon?

  4. Ari Jokimäki said

    These are good suggestions, all will have lists in the future, I’m sure. Magnus, could you clarify a little, did you mean the CO2 concentration measurements taken from ice cores, such as the Vostok ice core?

    Keep the suggestions coming. 🙂

    This is a quote from a denier: “”How do we know for sure that CO2 is driving warming now, since historically C02 increases have lagged warming by hundreds of years?”

    So, how about a list of papers citing historical (and prehistorical) temperatures correlated with C02 levels.

  6. Ari Jokimäki said

    Yes, that is a good one – the CO2 and temperature correlation in past and present – I’ll do that at some point. There are some papers that touch the subject (at least broadly) in the first three lists under the paleoclimate heading in the index page.

    I’m not sure if you’d think it appropriate for here, but research in biological sciences can up with articles like this:
    A long-term association between global temperature and biodiversity, origination and extinction in the fossil record
    Peter J Mayhew,1* Gareth B Jenkins,1 and Timothy G Benton2
    The Royal Society
    Proc Biol Sci. 2008 January 7; 275(1630): 47–53.
    Published online 2007 October 24. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2007.1302.

    Hey, that’s a good subject, thanks. I already have a list of the ecosystem response to current warming. It would be indeed nice to have also a list of papers showing how things went in past climate changes.
