Using Relative Humidity as a State Variable in Climate Feedback Analysis
Description: Scientists often use feedback terminology to help understand why models differ in their estimates of the magnitude of the surface temperature changes produced by a given change in the Earth's energy balance. But several lines of evidence have suggested that the methodology used to define these feedbacks is far from optimal. The goal of these researchers was to propose an alternative methodology that simplifies the analysis in several ways. [Source: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA)]
