(Reproduction of Fig. A1 of [53]) Net surface heat flux anomalies (positive up) in CMIP5 models immediately following abrupt quadrupling of CO2 (a) and after 100 years (b). Black curve shows ensemble mean of 16 different AOGCMs. Also shown: the idealized heat uptake scenarios q H (blue) and q T (red) used in aquaplanet simulations [53, 55], discussed further below. The CMIP5 models used here are ACCESS1-0, BCC-CSM1-1, CanESM2, CCSM4, CSIRO-Mk3-6-0, GFDL-CM3, GFDL-ESM2G, GFDL-ESM2M, INM-CM4, IPSL-CM5A-LR, IPSL-CM5B-LR, MIROC5, MIROC-ESM, MPI-ESM-LR, MRI-CGCM3, and NorESM1-M
