Table 7: Pattern correlation coefficient (PCC) over West Africa from the ensemble of RCMs driven by the same GCMs (Ens/ECHAM5 and Ens/HadCM3) and the ensemble of all RCMs and all GCMs (multi-model ensemble: Ens/RCMs and Ens/GCMs) rainfall with respect to GPCP. Ensembles data are interpolated to GPCP grid.
