Fig. 1: Divergence of water vapour and dry static energy.

From: Constraint on precipitation response to climate change by combination of atmospheric energy and water budgets

Fig. 1

Multi-model mean divergence of water vapour (−div(qv), left column ae—presented with a minus sign to be consistent with Eq. (1), calculated as the precipitation minus evaporation) and of dry static energy (div(s), right column fj—calculated as the precipitation plus the atmospheric radiative terms plus the surface sensible heat flux), at different spatial scales. The top row (a, f) shows the native model resolution, subsequent rows are averaged over a circle centred at each grid point with the given radius indicated in the title.
