Global warming and surface heat balance change for CMIP general circulation models
Submitted to Journal of Climate


The global warming and the change of surface heat balance in 18 CMIP models are studied. There is  strong enough correlation between global warming value and the change of shortwave radiation balance.  The connection between the global warming value and the geographical distribution of short wave radiation in the control experiment, and also connection between global warming value and heat flux correction are discussed.  These connections are used to estimate the global warming value for the real climate system.
