Stratospheric water vapour and high climate sensitivity in a version of the HadSM3 climate model

Abstract:

It has been shown previously that one member of the Met Office Hadley Centre single-parameter perturbed physics ensemble-the so-called "low entrainment parameter" member-has a much higher climate sensitivity than other individual parameter perturbations. Here we show that the concentration of stratospheric water vapour in this member is over three times higher than observations, and, more importantly for climate sensitivity, increases significantly when climate warms. The large surface temper...
