Abstract: This paper summarizes the importance of cloud radiative feedback to climate change and analyzes its spatial distribution using CMIP6 output. A comparison of the sea surface warming patterns indicates that they are closely related, with low cloud contributing the most to the net feedback. However, the underlying dynamics is still mysterious and the so-induced uncertainty needs urgent attribution.

Key words: global warming; cloud radiative feedback; sea surface warming patterns; uncertainty
