5–2 W/m2 by greenhouse gases to date, and this may be at least part of the reasons for the failure to detect a greenhouse signal. , in press). The model, starting from an initial state determined by surface observations in 1860, was run forward to 1990 with no man-made greenhouse gases or aerosols as a control experiment. The model’s average global surface temperatures showed realistic interannual variations but no overall rise over this period. 3). The next step was to compute the effects of sulphate aerosols with best estimates of concentration and geographical distribution.

The ocean model computes the current, potential temperature, salinity, density and the transports of heat and salt at 20 unequally spaced levels (depths) in the ocean, eight of these being in the top 120 m in order to simulate better the physics and dynamics in the active, well mixed layer, its seasonal variation, and the surface exchanges of heat, moisture and momentum with the atmosphere. The vertical velocity at the sea floor is computed assuming flow parallel to the slope of the bottom topography specified on a 1° × 1° data set.

7 CO2 emissions for 1990 and 2020. 8 A-C represent the WEC Commission’s cases from high growth (A) to ecologically driven (C). Owing to the growth of population and economic activity in the present developing countries, annual CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion are expected to rise in all cases to at least 2050. 9 compares the profiles of implied atmospheric CO2 concentration for the WEC Commission’s cases with the IPCC best guess scenario IS92a. The IPCC’s best estimate within the IS92a range has a rather similar 2100 outcome to the WEC Commission’s highest case, A.
