Entry ID: GFDL_CM2_1_PrecipitationModel1901-2100

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This animation depicts the time evolution of five-year averages of annual precipitation as simulated in the GFDL CM2.1 model for the period 2000 to 2100. Rather than mapping rainfall amounts in units of inches or millimeters, we have chosen to bin the values at each model grid point into five categories (indicated by the five colors in the color bar at the bottom of the plot).

The categories were ... View entire text
