Amendments to FAFMIP experimental design agreed in April 2019

At our meeting in April 2019, we decided to add three experiments:

We agreed also that it would be useful to add passive heat, using the surface flux of the faf-heat and faf-passiveheat experiments, in the faf-stress and faf-water experiments. Passive heat has no effect on the evolution (because it's passive!), but would give us information about the effect of the other surface fluxes on passive heat uptake processes. These effects are probably relevant to the heat uptake which occurs in faf-heat or in a conventional AOGCM CO2-forced experiment, in which all the surface fluxes are perturbed.
