Global change problems are the largest problem for humankind. Increase of global mean temperatures of several degrees and sea surface elevations of several tens of centimeters are expected on the middle of next century from recent studies. However, models used in these studies include many assumptions on parameters concerning atmosphere and ocean. A slight modification in these parameters may induce very different scenario on the future global climate.
