Figure 12-2: Scenarios for
changes from the 1980s to the 2080s for New Zealand: (a) mean summer (DJF) temperature
(°C), (b) mean winter (JJA) temperature (°C), (c) summer precipitation
(%), and (d) winter precipitation (%). These plots were derived by averaging downscaled
projections from four GCMs (CCC, CCSR, CSIRO9, and HadCM2) driven by CO2
concentrations increasing at a compound rate of 1% yr-1, plus specified
sulfate aerosol concentrations (Mullan et al., 2001).
