Improved method for rapid calculation of halocarbon radiative forcing

How to cite this Dataset


The model described in Pinnock et al. (Journal of Geophysical Research 1995 10.1029/95JD02323) permits the rapid and accurate calculation of the radiative forcing of halocarbons using the absorption cross-sections of those halocarbons (which could be derived from laboratory observations or quantum-chemical calculations). The provided values are an update to those given in Hodnebrog et al. (Reviews of Geophysics 2013 10.1002/rog.20013) and include, for the first time, an explicit wavenumber-dependent correction for the effect of stratospheric temperature adjustment. The revised method is detailed in Shine and Myhre (Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems 2020 10.1029/2019MS001951).
