Welcome to the website for the Green's Function Model Intercomparison Project (GFMIP)!


The GFMIP protocol is presented in this preprint, and consists of a series of simulations run with atmosphere-only general circulation models.

Boundary conditions

The boundary conditions for GFMIP's control and patch simulations are in this NetCDF file, on a 1ºx1º grid, with the sea ice conditions for all simulations given by the "sic" variable, the control SSTs given by the "sst_control" variable, and the patch SSTs given by the "sst_patch_..." variables.



The use of patches of sea surface warming/cooling perturbations to estimate the linear response of the atmosphere to the sea surface temperature field was first explored in a dynamical context by Barsugli and Sardeshmukh 2002 and Barsugli et al. 2006 and then applied to climate feedbacks by Zhou et al. 2017 and Dong et al. 2019.
