[1] This paper evaluates global mean radiatively important properties of chemistry climate models (CCMs). We evaluate stratospheric temperatures and their 1980–2000 trends, January clear sky irradiances, heating rates, and greenhouse gas radiative forcings from an offline comparison of CCM radiation codes with line‐by‐line models, and CCMs’ representation of the solar cycle. CCM global mean temperatures and their change can give an indication of errors in radiative transfer codes and/or… CONTINUE READING
