Figure 11: Mean summer (June–August) longitude-height cross-section of specific humidity (g/kg) and overlapping omega (10−3 Pa/s) from ECHAM5 (upper) and RegCM3 (lower) during the present day (left), the difference between early 21st century and the present day (middle), and the difference between late 21st century and the present day (right). Negative contours represent regions of ascent, and positive contours are regions of descent.
