El Niño and Greenhouse Warming : Results from Ensemble Simulations with the NCAR CCSM

  title={El Ni{\~n}o and Greenhouse Warming : Results from Ensemble Simulations with the NCAR CCSM},
  author={Hein Zelle and G. M. Jan and Gerrit J. H. Burgers and Henk Dijkstra},
The changes in model ENSO behavior due to an increase in greenhouse gases (according to the IPCC Business-As-Usual scenario) are investigated using a 62 member ensemble 140-year simulation (1940–2080) with the National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Climate System Model (CCSM, version 1.4). Although the global mean surface temperature increases by about 1.2 K over the period 2000–2080, there are no significant changes in the ENSO period, amplitude and spatial patterns. To explain… CONTINUE READING
