There indeed several ECHO-G "controls". Cubasch group has made several of them
and the MPI also. But they normalyy show a much large drift than our f77 control,
and this drift seems to depend on the initial conditions. they have been trying to
understand what is happening, as far as I know. Anyhow, if you wanted the control from which the initla conditions for ERIK were taken, it is this one.
Sorry for the possible overlap between Hugues papers and your work. Actually, I have
been marginally involved in that paper and Hugues and me even discussed on
his putting my name on it, as I felt my contribution had not been very large.
But we have to try to coordinate our work still more closely, altough it is becoming more
difficult, since there is increasing request for colaboration from several directions. I guess
this is good, but sometimes it is difficult to keep an overview.
For you to know, Hughes and me are planning to launch an "equivalent SRES A2" solar-only run,
with solar forcing matching the diagnosed greenhouse gas forcing, to check if
the sensitivities and feedbacks look roughly the same.
