I recently joined CP and know you have added variables such as sulfer into the equation but can you add any potential variables like the slowing of the gulf stream (which has slowed 30% over the past 12 years). Scientist predict that future gulf stream slowing could cool Europe by more than 1 Degree or more- Could this gulf stream variable be added to you models in the future? Could any future potential greenhouse warming could be off set by the gulf stream slowing? Some theories suggest this.

We did that already, in a special 4-Phase Model in \"Classic\" CPDN -- pre-boinc. It was forced .

The Coupled Model will look at both Atmosphere and Ocean. (200-year Spinups are being run for it now.) THC consequences, among other things, will flow (!) from that.

Atmospheric Sulfur counteracts GHG somewhat.
