Constraining climate model properties using optimal fingerprint detection methods

Abstract:

We present a method for constraining key properties of the climate system that are important for climate prediction (climate sensitivity and rate of heat penetration into the deep ocean) by comparing a model's response to known forcings over the twentieth century against climate observations for that period. We use the MIT 2D climate model in conjunction with results from the Hadley Centre's coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (AOGCM) to determine these constraints. The MIT 2D ...
