The implications for climate sensitivity of AR5 forcing and heat uptake estimates

A PDF file of a reformatted version of the final revised manuscript titled ‘The implications for climate sensitivity of AR5 forcing and heat uptake estimates’, with minor editing corrections, is available here: Lewis&Curry_AR5 energy budget climate sensitivity_Clim Dyn2014_accepted (reformatted, edited) (‘Lewis & Curry (2014)’) This work was accepted for publication by Climate Dynamics on 13 September 2014. The final publication is or will be available at Springer via http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00382-014-2342-y.

A compressed zip file containing data and computer code that will generate the results in the paper is available here: LewisCurry-AR5-EB-ClimDyn-2342.data&code

Update: A PDF copy of a blog post showing how the ECS and TCR estimates in Lewis & Curry (2014) would change if aerosol forcing consistent with that in Bjorn Stevens (2015): Rethinking the lower bound on aerosol radiative forcing, J. Climate were substituted for the AR5 aerosol forcing estimatesused originally is available here:  AR5_EBstudy_Stevens15Faer1e

Update April 2016: A PDF copy of a detailed blog artcle showing how the ECS and TCR estimates in Lewis & Curry (2014) would change on being updated by the inclusion of four more years’ data, and appraising claims that energy budget studies may underestimate climate sensitivity, is available here: https://niclewis.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/ar5_ebstudy_update_article1b.pdf
