  abstract = {{The need to understand differences among general circulation model
projections of CO$_{2}$-induced climatic change has motivated the
present study, which provides an intercomparison and interpretation of
climate feedback processes in 19 atmospheric general circulation models.
This intercomparison uses sea surface temperature change as a surrogate
for climate change. The interpretation of cloud-climate interactions is
given special attention. A roughly threefold variation in one measure of
global climate sensitivity is found among the 19 models. The important
conclusion is that most of this variation is attributable to differences
in the models' depiction of cloud feedback, a result that emphasizes the
need for improvements in the treatment of clouds in these models if they
are ultimately to be used as reliable climate predictors. It is further
emphasized that cloud feedback is the consequence of all interacting
physical and dynamical processes in a general circulation model. The
result of these processes is to produce changes in temperature, moisture
distribution, and clouds which are integrated into the radiative
response termed cloud feedback.
