The South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ) as simulated by CMIP5 climate models. (a) and (b) show the mean rainfall over the Pacific from two observational data sets. The diagonal (northwest-southeast) SPCZ over the southwest Pacific can clearly be seen. (d)-(o) are from individual CMIP5 climate models, and (c) is the mean over the models. The model SPCZs are too zonal (i.e., not diagonal), leading to other global climate errors.
