Climate Model Cloud Simulations

Technical Rating: star
The authors compared basic cloud climatologies from ten atmospheric general circulation models with satellite measurements. They reports that "differences of seasonal amplitudes among the models and satellite measurements can reach several hundred percent."



Aerosols

Technical Rating: star star
From "Human Impacts on Weather And Climate" by William Cotton. Examines the impact of human produced aerosols on climate. Aerosols have the potential for having substantial impacts on clouds, precipitation, and the radiative properties of clouds.



Internal Radiative Forcing And The Illusion Of A Sensitive Climate System

Technical Rating: star star
This paper uses a simple climate model to show how daily noise in the Earth's cloud cover amount can cause feedback estimates from observational data to be biased in the positive direction, making the climate system look more sensitive to man-made greenhouse gas emissions than it really is.



Climate Model Inadequacies (Radiation)

Technical Rating: star
This CO2 Science article discusses the problems that today's general circulation models of the atmosphere have in simulating the physics of earth's radiative energy balance. It shows that many processes are inadequately modeled, including clouds, solar effects and aerosols. Climate model test show they totally fail to reproduce recent climate parameters.



The Problem With Climate Models

Technical Rating: star
Dr Vincent Gray shows that climate models have great uncertainties. He concludes "that computer models cannot at present predict the future climate at all."
