Warm Paleocene/Eocene climate as simulated in ECHAM5/MPI-OM

We investigate the late Paleocene/early Eocene (PE) climate using the coupled atmosphere-ocean-sea ice model ECHAM5/MPI-OM. The surface in our PE control simulation is on average 297 K warm and ice-free, despite a moderate atmospheric CO<sub>2</sub> concentration of 560 p...
