Zhang and Nearing (2005) used Hardley Centre Model (HadCM3) for their study about the wheat productivity in Central Oklahoma.
2050s Los Angeles HadCM3 driven by 2.1- 2.7[degrees]C in 2050s, and San Diego SRES A2, downscaled and 4.6 to 5.5[degrees]C in regions, using MM5, then a 2090s.
Tracing the origin of the above IPCC statement on water stress to its original source, one is led to the results in Arnell's Table 10 (reproduced in Appendix A) that were generated for the year 2085 by the UK Hadley Centre's "coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model," version 3, or HadCM3 for short.
En este estudio se utilizo el modelo de circulacion general (GCM) HadCM3, un modelo acoplado atmosfera-oceano desarrollado por el Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research (http ://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/hadleycentre).
The HADCM3 scenario predicts a middle temperature increase and a precipitation decline in 2050 but not in 2100.
The third-generation Hadley Centre RCM (HadRM3) is based on the latest GCM, HadCM3. It has a horizontal resolution of 50 kilometers with 19 levels in the atmosphere (from the surface to 30 kilometers in the stratosphere) and four levels in the soil.
