In this work package, long climate change simulations are carried out and analysed. The studies are split into two phases. In phase I, simulations done at the climate modelling centres for contribution to CMIP5 are evaluated and analysed. A focus here is on the quantification of climate feedbacks in the various ESMs in a consistent way. In phase II, simulations with a set-up consistent with the ones of phase I will be carried out and analysed. The goal of theses analyses is to quantify changes in climate sensitivity and individual climate feedbacks due to the inclusion of new important climate processes by the developments in WP 1 – WP 4.
