Tropical and Rainfall Climate Under Climate Change

PI: John Chiang
Institution: University of California, Berkeley
My group and I plan to use the output in towards studies of the tropical climate (and in particular the rainfall climate) under climate change. We are interested specifically in these questions:

1) Response of the tropical Atlantic, in particular the effect on the magnitude and positioning of the ITCZ to CO2 increase
2) Response of the mean state tropical Pacific climate to CO2 increase
3) Comparison of tropical land and tropical ocean temperature and precipitation responses to CO increase
