Abstract. Ozone (O3) from 17 atmospheric chemistry models taking part in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project (ACCMIP) has been used to calculate tropospheric ozone radiative forcings (RFs). All models applied a common set of anthropogenic emissions, which are better constrained for the present-day than the past. Future anthropogenic emissions follow the four Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios, which define a relatively narrow range of possible…

Chemical and climatic drivers of radiative forcing due to changes in stratospheric and tropospheric ozone over the 21st century

Abstract. The ozone radiative forcings (RFs) resulting from projected changes in climate, ozone-depleting substances (ODSs), non-methane ozone precursor emissions and methane between the years 2000

Drivers of the tropospheric ozone budget throughout the 21st century under the medium-high climate scenario RCP 6.0

Abstract. Because tropospheric ozone is both a greenhouse gas and harmful air pollutant, it is important to understand how anthropogenic activities may influence its abundance and distribution

Tropospheric ozone radiative forcing uncertainty due to pre-industrial fire and biogenic emissions

Abstract. Tropospheric ozone concentrations are sensitive to natural emissions of precursor compounds. In contrast to existing assumptions, recent evidence indicates that terrestrial vegetation

Tropospheric ozone in CCMI models and Gaussian process emulation to understand biases in the SOCOLv3 chemistry-climate model.

TLDR
An updated version of SOCOLv3.0 is introduced, which includes an improved treatment of ozone sink processes, and results in a reduction in the tropospheric column ozone bias, mostly due to the inclusion of N2O5 hydrolysis on Tropospheric aerosols.

Attribution of Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative (CCMI) ozone radiative flux bias from satellites

Abstract. The top-of-atmosphere (TOA) outgoing longwave flux over the 9.6  µm ozone band is a fundamental quantity for understanding chemistry–climate coupling. However, observed TOA fluxes are hard

Radiative forcing and climate metrics for ozone precursor emissions: the impact of multi-model averaging

Abstract. Multi-model ensembles are frequently used to assess understanding of the response of ozone and methane lifetime to changes in emissions of ozone precursors such as NOx, VOCs (volatile
