Abstract

This dataset consists of derived annual mean globally averaged variables based on source model outputs generated by Thomas Froelicher in 2015 using a global coupled carbon-climate Earth System Model developed at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, GFDL ESM2M. This was a 1000-year simulation from 1861 to 2861, which forced a 1 percent annual rate increase in carbon dioxide from preindustrial levels until global mean surface air temperature increased by 2 degrees Celsius since the preindustrial, after this point emissions of carbon were set to zero and all other non-carbon dioxide greenhouse gases were kept at preindustrial levels. Source model outputs include the following parameters: ocean temperature; salinity; dissolved inorganic carbon; ocean alkalinity; dissolved inorganic phosphate; surface air temperature; atmospheric carbon dioxide and cumulative carbon emission. These data were the basis of calculating the following derived annual mean variables to summarise global surface warming responses: ocean carbon inventory; ocean carbon under saturation; saturated dissolved inorganic carbon; ocean dissolved inorganic carbon; radiative forcing from carbon dioxide; and ocean heat uptake. Additionally the dependence of radiative forcing on carbon emissions, dependence of surface warming on radiative forcing and surface warming dependence on radiative forcing were determined. This dataset was collected as part of a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) standard grant reference NE/N009789/1 - Mechanistic controls of surface warming by ocean heat and carbon uptake.
