Forty-year, time-varying GCM integrations have been run both with and without coupled chemistry. The results suggest that while computer resources preclude multi-member ensemble experiments with coupled chemistry models to achieve statistical significance, robust results can be achieved for some atmospheric parameters by running ensemble experiments with imposed ozone changes.
