Figure 3 A comparison of observed and modeled precipitation over the U.S. for the spring of 1980, illustrating the potential for improved predictions with higher spatial resolution. Top: Observed precipitation, March through May. Middle: Predictions for the same period using conventional GCM, illustrating the large regional errors that accompany broader-scale agreement. Bottom: Predictions from a model that utilizes significantly higher spatial resolution. Contours are in millimeters of rainfall. From G. Jenkins and E. Barron.
