  title = {{Uncertainties in Carbon Dioxide Radiative Forcing in Atmospheric General Circulation Models}},
  journal = {Science},

  month = nov,
  volume = 262,
  pages = {1252-1255},
  abstract = {{Global warming, caused by an increase in the concentrations of
greenhouse gases, is the direct result of greenhouse gas-induced
radiative forcing. When a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide is
considered, this forcing differed substantially among 15 atmospheric
general circulation models. Although there are several potential causes,
the largest contributor was the carbon dioxide radiation
parameterizations of the models.

  abstract = {{Among the various uncertainties present in climate modeling, the
variability of total solar irradiance is not one of the least. For lack
of any direct measure of the solar irradiance in the past, substitutes
are needed. However, the difficulties are twofold: (1) the reliability
of the proxies and (2) the need for some physical mechanism relating
these proxies to the solar luminosity. On the basis of a better
understanding of the solar machinery we can now propose a plausible
scenario connecting the exchanges of energy between the various
reservoirs: magnetic, thermal, gravitational, and kinetic. In the
present paper we discuss the available proxies and suggest a way to
reconstruct total solar irradiance over the past four centuries. The
response of the Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique atmospheric
general circulation model to magnetoconvective solar forcing during the
Maunder minimum is discussed. The simulated cooling appears to be
compatible with temperature data from the Little Ice Age; in addition,
it is found that variations of globally homogeneous external forcing
parameters, like incoming solar flux or greenhouse gas loading, yield
climate responses with very similar geographical patterns.

  title = {{SECHIBA, a New Set of Parameterizations of the Hydrologic Exchanges at the Land-Atmosphere Interface within the LMD Atmospheric General Circulation Model.}},
  journal = {Journal of Climate},
  year = 1993,
  month = feb,
  volume = 6,
  pages = {248-273},
  abstract = {{A simple parameterization of the hydrologic exchanges between the
soil-vegetation system and the atmosphere (SECHIBA) has been developed
for use within atmospheric general circulation models (AGCM).For each
grid box of the model, eight land surface types (bare soil plus seven
vegetation classes) are defined, each of them covering a fractional area
of the grid box and allowed to be found simultaneously. Over each of
these covers the transfers are computed: evaporation from soil,
transpiration from plants through a resistance defined by the concepts
of stomatal resistance and architectural resistance, and interception
loss from the water reservoir over the canopy. These fluxes are then
averaged over the grid box to derive the total amount of water vapor
that is transferred to the first atmospheric level of the AGCM.
Parameterization of soil water allows for the moistening of an upper
layer, of variable depth, during a rainfall event.This new scheme is
quite simple and requires prescription of a restricted number of
parameters: seven for each class of vegetation and four for the soil.
Nevertheless, it is demonstrated that the latent heat fluxes it
simulates are quite comparable to the ones simulated by the
Biosphere-Atmosphere Transfer Scheme or calculated by Shuttleworth over
the tropical rainforest of the Reserva Ducke (Amazon), with no tuning
