Introduction limitation of single basket approach
Introduction: limitation of single basket approach implications to metrics

Forcings for these two lines have the same value of GWP.

“Methane+640GtC” and “1280GtC, No Methane” have the same forcing in terms of GWP.

-> “Single basket approach” does not work for discussing stabilization levels. (Eby et al., 2009; Solomon et al., 2011)

GTP is superior when discussing stabilization


Different roles of short lived and long lived agents
Different roles of short-lived and long-lived agents implications to metrics

  • Short-lived: “trim” the peak

  • Long-lived: determine the stabilization level

“Two-basket approach” is proposed ( Solomon et al., 2011)

-> GTP for short-lived agents

Cumulative emission for long-lived agents

Cumulative carbon emission as a metric for climate stabilization level and transient climate response

Matthews et al. (2009)

CCR = T/CE = (T/CA)(CA/CE) = αA

CCR: Climate-carbon response (matthews et al., 2009)

α(=T/CA): Temperature rise per unit airborne carbon

A(=CA/CE): Airborne fraction

Cf. Climate sensitivity: λ=T/F

F: Radiative forcing

CCR may be regarded as “earth system sensitivity”, with the forcing being anthropogenic carbon emission rather than radiative forcing.

CCR is moderately scenario dependent in our case, but can be corrected in terms of OHU.

Implications for establishing metrics for short lived and long lived ghgs
Implications for establishing metrics for short-lived and long-lived GHGs

  • It is important to recognize the difference between short-lived and long-lived GHGs with the same GWP, in particular for discussing climate stabilization.

  • For stabilization issues, cumulative emission (CE) of long-lived GHGs may be more desirable than concentration.

  • There may be a moderate scenario dependence of CE, especially for fast scenarios due to that of ocean heat uptake (OHU).

  • Constraining OHU efficiency may improve the validity of CE as a metrics.
