Table 2 Study scenarios

From: Relationship between physical and biogeochemical parameters and the scenario dependence of the transient climate response to cumulative carbon emissions

Scenario pCO2 change rate Start CO2 level End CO2 level Duration (years)
I-1% 1% p.a. increase 1 × CO2 (Initial) 2 × CO2 70
I-0.25% 0.25% p.a. increase 1 × CO2 (Initial) 2 × CO2 280
I-0.5% 0.5% p.a. increase 1 × CO2 (Initial) 2 × CO2 140
I-2% 2 % p.a. increase 1 × CO2 (Initial) 2 × CO2 40
I-4% 4% p.a. increase 1 × CO2 (Initial) 4.5 × CO2 40
D-1% 1% p.a. decrease 2 × CO2 (after I1.0%) 1 × CO2 70
