Link between land‐ocean warming contrast and surface relative humidities in simulations with coupled climate models

Abstract:

Simulations of warming climates with coupled climate models exhibit strong land‐ocean contrasts in changes in surface temperature and relative humidity, but little land‐ocean contrast in changes in equivalent potential temperature. A theory that assumes equal changes in equivalent potential temperature over land and ocean captures the simulated land‐ocean warming contrast in the tropics if changes in relative humidity and ocean temperature are taken as given. According to the theory, land rel...
