The emission pathway is representative for scenarios in the literature leading to very low greenhouse gas concentration levels. It is a so-called \"peak\" scenario: its radiative forcing level first reaches a value around 3.1 W/m2 mid-century, returning to 2.6 W/m2 by 2100. In order to reach such radiative forcing levels, greenhouse gas emissions (and indirectly emissions of air pollutants) are reduced substantially over time. The final RCP is based on the publication by Van Vuuren et al. (2007)."; gcis:hasURL "http://www.iiasa.ac.at/web-apps/tnt/RcpDb/dsd?Action=htmlpage&page=welcome"^^xsd:anyURI; a gcis:Scenario .
