Figure 1.2: Projected annual precipitation changes across Canada.

The figure shows projected annual precipitation changes for Canada under a low emissions scenario (RCP2.6) (left panel) and under a high emissions scenario (RCP8.5) (right panel) for the near term (top row) and the late century (bottom row). Maps and time series of projected annual mean precipitation change (%) as represented by the median of the fifth phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) multi-model ensemble. Changes are relative to the 1986 to 2005 period.
