Multimodel GCM-RCM Ensemble-Based Projections of Temperature and Precipitation over West Africa for the Early 21st Century

Table 6

Mean bias and spatial root mean square difference (RMSD) at different sub-domains considered in Figure 1(b) from the ensemble of GCMs (Ens/GCMs), the ensemble of RCMs driven by the same GCMs (Ens/ECHAM5 and Ens/HadCM3), and the ensemble of all RCMs (multi-model ensemble: Ens/RCMs) rainfall with respect to GPCP. Ensembles data are interpolated to GPCP grid. Bias is expressed as percentage of GPCP value while RMSD as mm/day.
