  author={Mikkel Bennedsen and Eric Hillebrand and Jingying Zhou Lykke},
This paper estimates the two-component energy balance model as a linear state space system (EBM-SS model) using historical data. It is a joint model for the temperature in the mixed layer, the temperature in the deep ocean layer, and radiative forcing. The EBM-SS model allows for the modeling of non-stationarity in forcing, the incorporation of multiple data sources for the latent processes, and the handling of missing observations. We estimate the EBM-SS model using observational datasets at… 


Towards Bayesian hierarchical inference of equilibrium climate sensitivity from a combination of CMIP5 climate models and observational data
Despite decades of research, large multi-model uncertainty remains about the Earth’s equilibrium climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide forcing as inferred from state-of-the-art Earth system models
Understanding the links between climate feedbacks, variability and change using a two-layer energy balance model
A simple, two-layer energy balance model (EBM) is used to investigate climate variability in Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) models and examine possible links between
Optimal Estimation of Stochastic Energy Balance Model Parameters
This study has developed a rigorous and efficient maximum likelihood method for estimating the parameters in stochastic energy balance models (with any k > 0 number of boxes) given time series of
Does temperature contain a stochastic trend: linking statistical results to physical mechanisms
By construction, the time series for radiative forcing that are used to run the 20c3m experiments, which are implemented by climate models, impart non-stationary movements (either stochastic or

This is the first part of a series of two articles analyzing the global thermal properties of atmosphere‐ocean coupled general circulation models (AOGCMs) within the framework of a two-layer
Climate variability from annual to multi-decadal timescales in a two-layer stochastic energy balance model: analytic solutions and implications for general circulation models
Abstract A low-order stochastically forced two-layer global energy balance model (EBM) admitting an analytical solution is developed for studying natural inter-annual, decadal and multi-decadal
Energy Balance Climate Models
An introductory survey of the global energy balance climate models is presented with an emphasis on analytical results. A sequence of increasingly complicated models involving ice cap and radiative

Finite computer resources force compromises in the design of transient numerical experiments with coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation models which, in the case of global warming simulations,
Connecting Climate Model Projections of Global Temperature Change with the Real World
AbstractCurrent state-of-the-art global climate models produce different values for Earth’s mean temperature. When comparing simulations with each other and with observations, it is standard practice
