Table 8 Sensitivity of different quantities to the following forcings: atmospheric fluxes (\(\varDelta \hbox {Atm}\)), river runoff (\(\varDelta \hbox {Riv}\)), Atlantic hydrography (\(\varDelta \hbox {Atl}\)) and socio-economic scenario (\(\varDelta \hbox {Scen}\)). The values are computed over the 2070–2099 period
