GFDL Lunchtime Seminar

The logarithmic scaling of CO2 forcing is well-known and well-tested, but not very well understood in the sense that multiple unrelated explanations for it exist in the literature. Less well-known is the spatial heterogeneity in CO2 forcing, which varies from negligible or even negative values near the poles to much larger values in the tropics. In this talk I present a first principles, analytical model for CO2 forcing which captures both the logarithmic scaling of the forcing as well as these spatial variations, and which provides basic insight into both.
