Which are the most relevant processes in the Earth system to determine its response to a cessation of CO2 emissions?

In this WP, we will use the data from the Zero Emissions Commitment Model inter-comparison project (ZECMIP). For ZECMIP modelling groups were asked to perform simulations in which CO2 emissions are stopped. The application of the Systematic Correlation Matrix Evaluation tool (SCoMaE), that I developed during my PhD to the ensemble of ZECMIP, will enable us to provide process level insights into global mean and regionally resolved patterns of multi-model variability.

Accordingly, we can identify the key Earth system processes that drive uncertainty in zero CO2 emissions scenarios.
