The article focuses on the challenges of climatic change in the Asia-Pacific Region. In a study, A Change in Climate was conducted by the Economnist Intelligence Unit and revealed that more businesses in the region were monitoring the energy use abd enactment of a range of carbon-reduction strategies. The survey indicated regional differences in approach to the global issue.

    We analyse the ability of CMIP3 and CMIP5 coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models (CGCMs) to simulate the tropical Pacific mean state and El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The CMIP5 multi-model ensemble displays an encouraging 30 % reduction of the pervasive cold bias in the...

    Using a coupled atmosphere-ocean model we analyze the responses of the mean climate and interannual variations in the tropical Pacific to the changes in insolation during the early and middle Holocene, for which only the variations of Earth's orbital configuration are considered. Comparison of...
