Climate Change Scenario in Deserts, 2001


These maps show projected climate change in deserts in the period 2071-2100 in comparison to the period 1961-1990.

One shows the projected increase in average temperature, and the other the projected change in the average rate of precipitation.

“SRES scenarios show the period 2071 to 2100 relative to the period 1961 to 1990, and were performed by AOGCMs.””.
