The following links point to graphics displaying climatological mean January, July and (July - January) surface air temperature. This quantity is shown for each of the CMIP1 models and for each of five observed data sets. For a summary and discussion of these results, see the manuscript "The Seasonal Cycle in Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere General Circulation Models" by Covey et al.
