Caption: Computer-generated 3-dimensional model of temperature and soil moisture differences due to global warming. The blue band at the top indicates the stratospheric levels where the air has cooled by more than 2 Celsius, the red lower band shows regions where low-level air has warmed by more than 5 Celsius. The green patches on the surface show increased soil moisture (more than 1cm increase in rain per 3 month period), the smaller bright yellow patches show decreased soil moisture (more than 1cm decrease). This model is the mean of values calculated for December-February, 15-19 years into the model. The model assumes twice the current levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
