Transient climate response to cumulative CO2 emissions (TCRE)

The transient global average surface temperature change per unit of cumulative CO2 emissions, usually 1000 GtC. TCRE combines both information on the airborne fraction of cumulative CO2 emissions (the fraction of the total CO2 emitted that remains in the atmosphere, which is determined by carbon cycle processes) and on the transient climate response (TCR). See: Transient climate response (under Climate sensitivity).
