Page 1© Crown copyright 2007 CFMIP2: Options for SST-forced and slab experiments Mark Ringer, Brian Soden Hadley Centre,UK & RSMA/MPO, US CFMIP/ENSEMBLES Workshop: Paris, 11-13 th April 2007
Page 2© Crown copyright 2007 Introduction – consider options for SST-forced and slab model experiments Some issues to consider prior to this afternoons break-out group session on experimental design. CMIP 1% per year composite ΔSST pattern Climatological or AMIP control? Constructing the composite ΔSST pattern Other idealized SST perturbation experiments and approaches Slab model experiments These are just some ideas to get the discussion going…
Page 3© Crown copyright 2007 CMIP 1% per year increase in CO 2 : ΔTs at time of doubling (e.g. Wyant et al. 2006) Arguably more realistic and relevant to climate change over the 21 st century. However, the perturbation is relatively small ( ~ 1.4K) and there is little spatial structure in the tropics – resembles a uniform ΔTs in the zonal mean.
Page 4© Crown copyright 2007 Choosing the control experiment – seasonal climatology or varying (AMIP) SSTs? Climatology (e.g. 10 years) – reaches an equilibrium, which should hopefully reduce the noise in the response. AMIP – control is potentially more useful for evaluation studies, but the response will be conditioned by ENSO and other variability during the period.
Page 5© Crown copyright 2007 Constructing the composite ΔTs pattern One alternative to simple averaging might be to average the patterns i.e. ΔTs/ and then scale by ensemble mean. This would reduce biases due to very high or low sensitivity models, for example. ΔTs ΔTs /
Page 6© Crown copyright 2007 In addition, we could also consider… A simple globally uniform SST perturbation (e.g. the ensemble mean ΔTs) to determine the impact of the SST pattern versus the overall warming – a seasonally varying version of the Cess et al. (1989) method A zonally uniform SST perturbation to isolate the impact of changes to the meridional gradient in SST (analogous to the aquaplanet experiments in APE) Reducing the SSTs – this might also provide insights into feedbacks. E.g. Wyant et al. show that +2K/-2K responses are not necessarily symmetric in a given model Including a composite sea-ice response as well as the SST perturbation – but how?
Page 7© Crown copyright 2007 Other approaches – e.g. Barsugli et al. (2006) [Climate Dynamics, 27(5), Oct. 2006] Specified 2K warming/cooling at different locations in the tropics in order to investigate sensitivity to the pattern of ΔSST. Allowed them to separate the local and global sensitivities to the warming. Example shown is for TOA net radiation – local sensitivity is +ive everywhere but global sensitivity can be either +ive or -ive. Other techniques include introducing (or suppressing) warming at specific locations believed to be important. E.g. Schneider et al. [JAS, 54, May 1997] held SSTs in the Pacific cold tongue at control values while allowing temperatures elsewhere to vary in response to doubling CO 2.
Page 8© Crown copyright 2007 Slab models – equilibrium 2×CO 2 experiments, as in CFMIP1 Although not identical, the control states are relatively similar. Allows us to consider equilibrium climate sensitivity – if that is still thought to be important! Also provides continuity with previous studies. Will slab models be included in IPCC AR5? If not, what will they be replaced by (if anything)? Should CFMIP2 do them in any case?
Page 9© Crown copyright 2007 Slab models – continued Produce larger response – magnitude and spatial pattern – than the 1% per year simulations. Could produce a composite pattern from these for the SST-forced experiments? In essence this would mean CFMIP2 looking like CFMIP1 but with patterned SST experiments replacing the Cess et al. (1989) runs plus sensitivity experiments and any other idealized experiments we decide to do…

Other idealized experiments Classic, e.g. uniform ΔSST, reduced SST, etc More sophisticated, e.g. Barsugli et al. method Slab model experiments Exclude if not part of IPCC AR5 Perform anyway as part of CFMIP2
