For MBSs, the HadCM2 and GFDL scenarios projected biome-type changes of 17 and 50 percent, respectively.
GFDL conducts leading-edge research to expand the scientific understanding of many topics, including weather and hurricane forecasts, El Nino prediction, stratospheric ozone depletion, and global warming.
For the great agricultural zone that extends from the eastern slope of the Rockies to the Atlantic, the GFDL model predicts a 30 percent reduction in soil moisture for a doubling of carbon dioxide (shortly after mid-century) and a 60 percent reduction for a quadrupling (in the next century).

Also the adjoint code of the GFDL ocean model has been constructed this way [Tziperman and Thacker 1989; Tziperman et al.
We did this by replacing the climate-related variables in our predictor variable set with those based on the GFDL and GISS models.
The changes in temperature and precipitation projected by these three GCMs for the Grand River basin are seen in Table 3 (Sanderson and Smith, 1993) Table 3: Changes in Monthly Temperature ([degrees]C) and Precipitation (% Change) Projected by Various GCMs for the Grand River Basin GISS GFDL CCC Month Temp.
