Abstract/Summary

Koppen climate classification was applied to the output of atmospheric general circulation models and coupled atmosphere-ocean circulation models. The classification was used to validate model control runs of the present climate and to analyse greenhouse gas warming simulations The most prominent results of the global warming con~putationsw ere a retreat of regions of permafrost and the increase of areas with tropical rainy climates and dry climates.
