Yao, 2020: CMIP6 historical simulations (1850-2014) with GISS ModelE2.1. J. Adv. Model. Earth Syst., submitted.

Simulations of the recent historical period 1850{2014, characterized by the emergence of anthropogenic climate drivers like greenhouse gases, are presented for different versions of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) Earth System Model E2.1 submitted to CMIP6. The E2.1 models are more sensitive to forcing in transient experiments than their CMIP5 predecessors (GISS-E2), but warm less during recent decades due to reduced total forcing. This forcing reduction is attributed to an increase in longwave opacity in pre-industrial simulations, resulting in an atmosphere less sensitive to further increases in opacity that result from rising greenhouse gas concentrations. This demonstrates the importance of the unperturbed climate to forcing and forced climate trends. Most model versions match observed temperature trends since 1979 from the surface to the middle troposphere and lower stratosphere. Northern Hemisphere sea-ice loss is better simulated than in CMIP5. Observed ocean trends of heat content and sea level rise are also matched. The choice of ocean model is important to the transient climate response, as found in CMIP5: the model that more eacuteciently exports heat to the deep ocean shows a smaller rise in tropospheric temperature.
