Focusing on the period 1955-2005, we here present results from offline radiative forcing (RF) calculations from a global chemistry climate model. Using realistic distributions of ODS and consistent stratospheric ozone, we show that ODS dominate the adjusted stratospheric warming of the lower stratosphere, where CO2 has little radiative impact. We also show that the global mean RF of stratospheric ozone only cancels a fraction of the RF of ODS, leaving an important ODS contribution to anthropogenic forcing. Finally we show that the RF of ODS opposes Arctic amplification, its equator-to-pole gradient being larger than the one of CO2.
This data-set consists of the output fields including temperature adjustment and radiative forcing from offline experiments using the NCAR CESM-PORT model.
