Model projections of CO2-induced equilibrium climate change

M. E. Schlesinger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The changes in the equilibrium climate induced by a doubling of the CO2 concentration have been simulated by energy-balance, radiative-convective and general circulation climate models. These models have given a surface air temperature warming of 0.2-10°C, 0.5-4.2°C and 2.8-5.2°C, respectively. The warming simulated by the general circulation models (GCMs) increases from the tropics toward the winter pole, but the regional changes show significant differences among the models. -from Author
