Cooling effect from the oceans in global warming

The ocean soaks up about 90 percent of the heat of climate change, because of ocean heating. When using the formula of Svante Arrhenius to calculate forcing due to atmospheric $CO_2$ $\Delta F=\alpha\...

About climate sensitivity of carbon dioxide: today compared with PETM

Due to IPCC the climate sensitivity of CO₂ very likely is 3.0 ± 1.5 ℃ for each doubling of the concentration of atmospheric CO₂. Counting on earlier global warming using the Arrhenius formula [ΔT=λ·...

CO2 behaviour in atmosphere

I have a doubts about how $\small\mathsf{CO_2}$ absorbs an re-emits infra red (IR) radiation. Let's imagine an only-$\small\mathsf{CO_2}$ atmosphere. In this case, a large amount of 15 $\small\mathsf{...

How does one analyze this graph on atmospheric C02 data obtained from the Mauna Loa observatory?

Graph I am analyzing: What I am trying to figure out from the graph is: What is the range for CO2 over the record (approximation) What are the major forcings for the overall trend in this record ...
