The next generation of scenarios for climate change research and assessment
A new process for creating plausible scenarios to investigate some of the most challenging and important questions about climate change confronting the global community is described. Expand
The simulation of SST, sea ice extents and ocean heat transports in a version of the Hadley Centre coupled model without flux adjustments
Abstract Results are presented from a new version of the Hadley Centre coupled model (HadCM3) that does not require flux adjustments to prevent large climate drifts in the simulation. The model hasExpand
THE WCRP CMIP3 Multimodel Dataset: A New Era in Climate Change Research
A coordinated set of global coupled climate model [atmosphere–ocean general circulation model (AOGCM)] experiments for twentieth- and twenty-first-century climate, as well as several climate changeExpand
The second Hadley Centre coupled ocean-atmosphere GCM: model description, spinup and validation
Abstract. This study describes a new coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model (OAGCM) developed for studies of climate change and results from a hindcast experiment. The model includesExpand
Anthropogenic climate change for 1860 to 2100 simulated with the HadCM3 model under updated emissions scenarios
Abstract. In this study we examine the anthropogenically forced climate response over the historical period, 1860 to present, and projected response to 2100, using updated emissions scenarios and anExpand

Mechanisms Determining the Atlantic Thermohaline Circulation Response to Greenhouse Gas Forcing in a Non-Flux-Adjusted Coupled Climate Model
Abstract Models of the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) show a range of responses to the high-latitude warming and freshening characteristic of global warming scenarios. Most simulate aExpand
The time-dependence of climate sensitivity
A doubled CO2 coupled ocean-atmosphere experiment has been run for over 800 years. The ‘effective’ equilibrium climate sensitivity to a doubling of CO2 (the equilibrium response of the model assumingExpand
Changing spatial structure of the thermohaline circulation in response to atmospheric CO2 forcing in a climate model
The heat transported northwards by the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation warms the climate of western Europe. Previous model studies have suggested that the circulation is sensitive toExpand
