Figure 10.2: Surface temperature
biases (in °C) and precipitation biases (% of observed) for 1961 to 1990 for
experiments using the AOGCMs of CSIRO Mk2, CCSR/NIES, ECHAM/OPYC, CGCM1 (a three-member
ensemble) and HadCM2 (a four-member ensemble) with historical forcing including
sulphates (further experimental details are in Table 9.1).
Regions are as indicated in Figure 10.1 and observations
are from New et al. (1999a,b). (a) surface air temperature, (b) precipitation
(from Giorgi and Francisco, 2000b).
