Climate Response from CM2.1 and AM2.1

Projected percentage change in annual mean precipitation from the 1971-2000 average to the 2041-2070 average. The top panel is for the CM2.1 climate model which uses a 2 degree atmospheric model. The bottom panel is for a timeslice experiment using a 1/2 degree atmosphere-only model forced with SST warming derived from the CM2.1 model.
