Upper Salween/Mekong basins future climate – Rainfall & Temperature
Rainfall: Rainfall projections in summer show an increasing trend over both upper basins, with an increase of about 5–10% over the southern areas where the normal precipitation is low. In the upper part of these basins...

Indus basin climate indicators – Rainfall & Temperature
Rainfall: Overall, the upper basin receives more precipitation than the lower basin and plays an important role in water availability in the whole basin throughout the year. Within the upper basin, the main mountain ran...

Brahmaputra basin future climate – Rainfall & Temperature
Rainfall: Future scenarios project a 5–25% increase in summer rainfall over most of the basin up until 2050. According to the wettest scenario (RCP 8.5), the increase could be more than 25%, especially in the northern a...

Annual Temperature Increase for 2001-2005 Relative to 1951-1980
Sea-surface and land-surface temperature changes. Change in ocean sea-surface temperature and temperature over land from 2001 to 2005, relative to the 1951-1980 mean (Hansen et al. 2006). The Arctic is experiencing some ...

Arctic Surface Air-Temperature Change
Change is measured relative to measurements from 1901 to 1950 (black curve). Orange region is the 2001-2100 prediction given the A1B scenario (pCO2 increase to 700 ppm by 2100). Bars to the right indicate the predictions...

Predicted Increase in Global Mean Surface-Air Temperatures
Increases are relative to 1980–1999 for different emission scenarios (IPCC 2007). The partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (pCO2) is assumed to attain a value of 800 to 1 000 parts per million (ppm) at th...

Schematic diagram of glacier, permafrost and forest limits as a function of mean annual air temperature and average annual precipitation
Glaciers and ice caps form around the world where snow deposited during the cold/humid season does not entirely melt during warm/dry times. This seasonal snow gradually becomes denser and transforms into perennial firn (...

Overview on glacier changes since the end of the Little Ice Age
Glaciers and ice caps reached their Holocene (the past 10 000 years) maximum extent in most mountain ranges throughout the world towards the end of the Little Ice Age, between the 17th and mid-19th century. Over the past...

Trends in spring temperatures and ice break-up dates in Canada
In Canada, recent evidence indicates a shortening of the freshwater-ice season over much of the country with the reduction being mainly attributable to earlier break ups. These trends match those in surface air temperatu...
