Email 3008, Oct 1999, Timothy Carter to Mike Hulme: Japanese model shows Arctic Ocean to get up to 26 degrees C. hotter

Email 3008

He has produced some graphs of selected representative regions for the characterizations, and they seem OK except for some enormous changes at northern high latitudes with the Japanese model. With scaling these are up to 26 deg C (Arctic Ocean - we haven't looked at Arctic land yet)! Seasonal changes in the tropics are nearer a few deg C and in the Antarctic are less than 10 deg C.
