Normalized Histograms of Pacific Trade Wind Trends

Caption: This image shows normalized histograms of Pacific trade wind trends (computed over 6 N S and 180W) for all 20-year periods using monthly data in observations (1980-2011) versus available CMIP5 models (1980-2013). The observed trend strength during 1992-2011 is indicated.
