The climate change in South America due to a doubling in the CO2 concentration: intercomparison of general circulation model equilibrium experiments


, : The climate change in South America due to a doubling in the CO2 concentration: intercomparison of general circulation model equilibrium experiments. International Journal of Climatology 17(4): 377-398

Climatic mean sea-level (MSL) pressure, temperature, and precipitation fields simulated by five general circulation models were compared with observations in South America to assess their accuracy.
