The animation below consists of 6 panels that illustrate plausible monthly precipitation scenarios using the CSIRO and MIROC global climate change models.

The top left panel shows monthly precipitation for the period around 2000. The color and the elevation both represent the same information, with monthly precipitation ranging from 0 mm (yellow) to 300 mm (red). You can pause the animation with the slider below the animation and zoom in by clicking the map.

The bottom four panels show changes between 2000 and the climate scenario results for the period around 2050. The left panels present results from the CSIRO model; the right panels are results from the MIROC model. The top two panels are for the A1B scenario; the bottom two panels are for the B1 scenario.
