First row: BCx10 minus BASE difference in BC load, second row: near-surface temperature, third row: ERF, and fourth row: precipitation. Changes are based on years 51–100 of the coupled runs, except for ERF which is based on the years 6–15 of the fSST runs. The leftmost groups of bars show the global mean responses, while the remaining groups are averages over the latitude bands indicated on the x axis. Numbers above the groups of bars show region averages (relative intermodel standard deviation in parentheses) for the given latitude band.


Rapid adjustments cause weak surface temperature response to increased black carbon concentrations
