Radiative forcing is a useful diagnostic quantity for indicating the size of climate change mechanisms, and for interpreting the results of General Circulation Model (GCM) experiments. It is also ideal for exploring the potential sensitivity of climate change simulations to assumptions regarding, for example, the horizontal and vertical distribution of changes in greenhouse gases, as a guide to whether these effects need to be incorporated into GCMs. This paper examines this issue for a range… CONTINUE READING
