Radiative Forcing (Relative to 1750) Due to Major Greenhouse Gases (GHGs)
This figure appears in chapter 1 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.
Major GHGs include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), trichlorofluoromethane (CFC11), and dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC12). The 15 minor GHGs include CFC-113; CCl4; CH3CCl3; HCFCs 22, 141b, and 142b; HFCs 134a, 152a, 23, 143a, and 125; SF6; and halons 1211, 1301, and 2402. Radiative forcing calculations, in watts (W) per m2, are based on measurements of GHGs in air trapped in snow and ice in Antarctica and Greenland prior to about 1980 and atmospheric measurements taken since then.
