Atmospheric Global Climate Model 2

The global diagnostic plots in this section show results from an "equilibrium" climate change experiment with AGCM2 consisting of 20-year 1xCO2 and 2xCO2 simulations. Plots are shown for the 1xCO2 run and the difference between the 2xCO2 and 1xCO2 runs, for the following variables:

  • Screen temperature (air temperature 2m above the ground) [°C],
  • Precipitation [mm/day],
  • Sea ice [m],
  • Snow [kg/m2],
  • Soil moisture [percent of field capacity].
These plots can be viewed for the mean annual values of the above variables, and for the DJF and JJA seasons. In the following menus please select the variable and the season, and then click on Show Plots button to view the diagnostic plots.
