HadGEM2 radiative kernels

Smith, Christopher J. (2018) HadGEM2 radiative kernels. University of Leeds. [Dataset]

This is the latest version of this item.

Dataset description

Radiative kernels generated from the HadGEM2-ES climate model, using a pre-industrial climatology. Kernels are provided for both the 38 native model levels in HadGEM2 and the 17 standard CMIP5 pressure levels. Changes in top-of-atmosphere (TOA) radiative flux and surface radiative flux are provided for perturbations in atmospheric temperature of 1 K, specific humidity (change in specific humidity that preserves relative humidity for an increase in temperature of 1 K), surface (skin) temperature of 1 K and surface albedo of 1 % (absolute). For the 38-level kernels the model pressure level and thickness (in pressure coordinates) of the layer is also provided. Contributions to longwave (LW), shortwave (SW) and net fluxes are produced for temperature and water vapour.
