Due to the non-linearity of cloud-radiation interaction in general circulation models (GCMs), the time-mean cloud radiative forcing (CRF) is in general different from the CRF of time-mean clouds. This implies that a change in temporal cloud variability induces a change in radiative forcing even if there is no change in time-mean cloud properties. Here we investigate this variability contribution to CRF quantitatively in the NCAR CCM3.6 GCM. In a reference run, the variability contribution isdoi:10.3402/tellusa.v59i5.15169 fatcat:34nqmqvugzfwbnrx3hqlnfq7au
