Global circulation models (GCMs) have become the main tools for the simulation of future climate change and their projections are being used extensively in the assessment reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). GCMs rely on the laws of physics to describe the response of the Earth system to enhanced levels of greenhouse gas concentrations, as well as to other types of anthropogenic forcing.
