Geographical patterns of multimodel mean precipitation change.

Each row shows a different climate perturbation. Hatched regions indicate where the multimodel mean is more than 1 standard deviation away from zero. (first column) Total change. (second column) Fast change due to rapid adjustments. (third column) Slow change due to surface temperature change. (fourth column) Multimodel zonal means, showing fast (blue), slow (red), and total (black) precipitation changes. The shaded bands show ±1σ of the nine-model ensemble.
