About Andre Bijkerk

About André Bijkamp (Chief Editor) - Andre K. Bijkerk was born in Heerde in 1953. He studied at the Royal Military Academy in Breda (specialty: Electronics and control technology), before becoming a fighter pilot in Canada. He attained a career with the Royal Netherlands Air Force at various airbases, the airforce staff and NATO staffs in Germany. His interest in climatology was awakened with the discovery of a mammoth mummy in North Siberia in 1998 which triggered several questions about the climate during the ice age.

Ice Ages, ‘Unsolving’ the mystery

Refuting the ice volume proxy by system dynamics.   Abstract Oxygen isotope (δ18O) data collected from ocean sediment cores (benthic stacks) are thought to be a proxy for global ice volume during the Pleistocene ice ages. However, the ‘system dynamics’ of accumulating ice sheets causes a phase shift compared to the original forcing signal, which [...]

Ice age revisited, integrated insolation and the MIS-3 Mystery

Falsifying the supposed role of CO2 in the ice age cycles Category: Paleoclimatology Abstract In previous posts we have examined the climate/temperature mismatch between actual field exploration and the ice cores, during relatively short periods after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). We have concluded that the isotope paleo thermometer from the ice cores is not a direct [...]

The physics of doubling CO2 (full version)

Frans van den Beemt Computing HITRAN data, basic global temperature increase for doubling CO2 is limited to 0.16K-0.20K Guest contribution by Frans van den Beemt Full version of an earlier summary Long read. Abstract We analyzed CO2 absorption and emission of infrared radiation and calculated the upper limit of a possible temperature increase [...]

Revisiting the ice core isotope thermometer

André Bijkerk Isotopes in precipitation are essentially not a proxy for temperature but for humidity. Category: Paleoclimatology and Atmosphere This is the fourth post in series with the objective of revisiting the Pleistocene ice ages, demonstrating that several well-accepted scientific practices don't hold up very well in the big picture. In the previous [...]

The Younger Dryas and the isotope paleothermometer

Researching discrepancies of the Arctic isotope paleothermometer versus other climate reconstructions during the Younger Dryas. Category: Paleoclimate This is the second post in series with the objective of revisiting the Pleistocene ice ages, demonstrating that several well-accepted scientific practices don't hold up very well in the big picture. We will examine possible flaws in current [...]

The African Humid Period

André Bijkerk As we in the north of the globe wonder about climate changes in the past, we think about ice ages, the equatorials however wonder about climate change as in monsoons changes. For instance if we zoom in on the Sahara in Google Earth we see remains of lush rainforests and numerous [...]

Heating the natural greenhouse

Kees Le Pair Guest contribution by Kees le Pair - Category: Atmosphere Abstract The gap between measured temperatures and the radiation equilibrium is more than 33 ºC as assumed in present day greenhouse considerations. Either the atmospheric greenhouse is not understood well enough, or rather there may be other mechanisms that help to bridge [...]

The mystery interval

Category: Paleoclimatology Sub category: the isotope thermometer of the ice cores. André Bijkerk Abstract The Anthropogenic climate change hypothesis has its roots in the climate reconstructions based on the ice core records of Antarctica and Greenland. Isotope ratios of oxygen and hydrogen in the ice are assumed to be proxies for global temperature. [...]
