Regional Patterns of Sea Surface Temperature Change : A Source of 2 ! Uncertainty in Future Projections of Precipitation and Atmospheric 3 ! Circulation


1! Precipitation change in response to global warming has profound impacts on 2! environment for life but is highly uncertain. Effects of sea surface temperature (SST) 3! warming on the response of rainfall and atmospheric overturning circulation are 4! investigated using Coupled Model Intercomparison Project simulations. The SST 5! warming is decomposed… (More)
