Water Vapour Feedback Observations and Climate Sensitivity
Richard P. Allan
Environmental Systems Science Centre (ESSC), University of Reading
The response of atmospheric moisture to changes in
surface temperature (Ts) determines to a large extent
the sensitivity of the climate system to a radiative
perturbation. Aside from the indirect influence of
moisture changes on cloud feedbacks, a primary
component of the direct water vapour feedback (wv
) is
encapsulated by,
