Twentieth century climate model response and climate sensitivity

  title={Twentieth century climate model response and climate sensitivity},
  author={Jeffrey T Kiehl},
[1] Climate forcing and climate sensitivity are two key factors in understanding Earth’s climate. There is considerable interest in decreasing our uncertainty in climate sensitivity. This study explores the role of these two factors in climate simulations of the 20th century. It is found that the total anthropogenic forcing for a wide range of climate models differs by a factor of two and that the total forcing is inversely correlated to climate sensitivity. Much of the uncertainty in total… CONTINUE READING
