Abstract

Climate change is a significant change in weather or in its variability in a long period. This change could be in the average of temperature, rainfall, humidity, weather patterns, wind, and sunlight and so on. Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model (AOGCMs) have been developed to simulate current climate of the planet and are able to predict future climate change of the Earth. In this paper the performance of CGCM3, CSIRO Mk3 and HadCM3 models in estimating the effects of climate change on temperature and precipitation of the Taleghan basin were studied. The results show that despite relatively acceptable performance of all three models in temperature modeling, it seems that the outputs of HadCM3 model for this basin are more desirable when compared with CGCM3 and CSIRO MK3 models and it is can be said that HadCM3 seems to be more reliable for this basin.
