Version of Record online: 21 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL058315

Key Points

  • Sea ice loss (2.6 W m−2) and clouds (1.2 W m−2) explain RCP8.5 absorbed SW changes
  • Southern Ocean radiatively important clouds (RIC) are low-level liquid clouds
  • RIC respond primarily to warming and stability changes, not poleward jet shifts
