Re: Today's new Abiotic HOWTO (final) - 2. New IPCC run (bis)

Further information concerning the CIS92A
- ----------------------------------------- 

Atmospheric CO2 concentrations derive from T.M.L.Wigley, T.Holt and
S.C.B.Raper 1991, STUGE User's Manual, Climatic Research Unit, University
of East Anglia, UK.  To determine atmospheric CO2 from IS92a emissions,
they used a the Green's function from the inorganic carbon-cycle model of
Maier-Reimer and Hasselmann (1987); they did NOT include a terrestrial
component. Although unrealistic, this scenario offers an opportunity to
compare terrestrial and oceanic CO2 uptake between many models within
the IPCC framework.
