  author={Raymond S. Bradley and Frank T. Keimig and Henry F. Diaz},
6 [1] Analysis of 7 GCM simulations with 2x CO2 levels 7 shows large and statistically significant free air temperature 8 changes (compared to controls) along the axis of the 9 American Cordillera (from Alaska to southern Chile). At all 10 latitudes, the modeled change in temperature increases with 11 elevation. Temperature increases are especially large in 12 boreal summer months from 35–50 N, and year-round in 13 the high mountains of Peru, Bolivia and northern Chile. If 14 these models are… CONTINUE READING
