climate sensitivity

  1. The magnitude of a climatic response to a perturbing influence.

  2. In mathematical modeling of the climate, the difference between simulations when the magnitude of a given parameter is changed.

  3. In the context of global climate change, the equilibrium change in global mean surface temperature following a unit change in radiative forcing.
