Record #110534:

Upper limit for sea ice albedo feedback contribution to global warming / Curt Covey, Karl E. Taylor, Robert E. Dickinson.

Title: Upper limit for sea ice albedo feedback contribution to global warming / Curt Covey, Karl E. Taylor, Robert E. Dickinson.
Author(s): Covey, Curt.
Taylor, Karl E.
Dickinson, Robert E.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1991.), Vol. 96(D5) (1991)
Abstract: Two versions of National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Climate Model are used to calculate solar energy absorbed by Earth-atmosphere system if all sea ice were to melt due to global warming. When sea-ice albedo is replaced by open ocean albedo, albedo change at top of atmosphere is reduced from albedo change at surface mainly by shielding effect of clouds. Both versions of model calculated that little more than half of surface albedo reduction appears as planetary albedo reduction, resulting in globally averaged increase in absorbed solar energy of 2 to 3 W m⁻².
