Fig. 2: Scale of closure of the water and energy budgets.

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

Fig. 2

The CMIP5 multi-model mean: a scale [km] for which the water budget is closed to within 10% i.e., |(PE)|/P < 0.1— LWB (10%). b scale [km] for which the energy budget is closed to within 10% i.e., |(P + Q)|/P < 0.1—LEB (10%). c regions in which each scale is larger than the other (in blue regions in which LWB (10%) > LEB (10%), while in white regions in which LWB (10%) < LEB (10%)). d combined scale of closure composed of the smaller scale between LWB (10%) and LEB (10%).
