Multi-Satellite Climatology of Evaporation and Precipitation

PI: Carl Mears
Institution: Remote Sensing Systems
Abstract:
We wish to compare precipitation trends in the AR4 AMIP runs to those observed in SSM/I data. We suspect that the increases in the modeled precipitation will be less than observed with SSM/I, since the modeled precipitation tends to increase less than total water vapor, while the satellite-observed precipitation tends to keep up with the total column water vapor. This perhaps suggests some problems in the current generation of models or forcings.
