The last interglacial (LIG), also identified to the Eemian in Europe, began at approximately 130 kyr BP and ended at about 115 kyr BP (before present). More and more proxy-based reconstructions of the LIG climate are becoming more available even though they remain sparse. The major climate forcings during the LIG are rather well known and therefore models can be tested against paleoclimatic data sets and then used to better understand the climate of the LIG. However, models are displaying a large range of responses, being sometimes contradictory between them or with the reconstructed data. Here we would like to investigate causes of these differences. We focus on a single climate model, LOVECLIM, and we perform transient simulations over the LIG, starting at 135 kyr BP and run until 115 kyr BP. With these simulations, we test the role of the surface boundary conditions (the time-evolution of the Northern Hemisphere (NH) ice sheets) on the simulated LIG climate and the importance of the parameter sets (internal to the model, such as the albedos of the ocean and sea ice), which affect the sensitivity of the model. The magnitude of the simulated climate variations through the LIG remains too low compared to reconstructions for climate variables such as surface air temperature. Moreover, in the North Atlantic, the large increase in summer sea surface temperature towards the peak of the interglacial occurs too early (at ∼128 kyr BP) compared to the reconstructions. This feature as well as the climate simulated during the optimum of the LIG, between 131 and 121 kyr BP, does not depend on changes in surface boundary conditions and parameter sets. The additional freshwater flux (FWF) from the melting NH ice sheets is responsible for a temporary abrupt weakening of the North Atlantic meridional overturning circulation, which causes a strong global cooling in annual mean. However, the changes in the configuration (extent and albedo) of the NH ice sheets during the LIG only slightly impact the simulated climate. Together, configuration of and FWF from the NH ice sheets greatly increase the magnitude of the temperature variations over continents as well as over the ocean at the beginning of the simulation and reduce the difference between the simulated climate and the reconstructions. Lastly, we show that the contribution from the parameter sets to the climate response is actually very modest.
A Spanish smartphone app that enables tenants to meet up online and rent properties together via a ‘Tinder’ style matching platform has raised a further £24 million to develop and expand its service in the UK and beyond.Based in Barcelona, the extra cash has come from the same US investors behind challenger bank Monzo and Facebook.Called Badi, the app claims to streamline the process of finding roomies to share homes with by enabling them to complete a ‘matchmaking’ process via the app and apply for properties to rent.During the initial part of the process, tenants reveal information about their lifestyles and ideal property and roommates. They are then matched via a Tinder-style app, after which connected tenants can chat together before house hunting.In the UK Badi says it want to take market share from both more established rivals such as SpareRoom.com as well letting agents and Rightmove.The new cash brings Badi’s total raised so far to over £35 million.40,000 tenantsLaunched in April last year, the app says it already has 40,000 users in London and currently offers over 100 properties. It has also set up in several other European cities including Rome, Madrid and Milan.Badi has already been going for over three years in Spain and was founded by entrepreneur Carlos Pierre who graduated in 2014, worked for PWC as an auditor and then launched Badi in September 2015.“In every big market there are classic room renter platforms,” he says. “The thing that we are offering is the user experience.”rental datingapp badi Carlos Pierre dating app Tinder January 11, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
