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).
