A global perspective on CMIP5 climate model biases

The use of models for the prediction of future climate conditions is commonplace. This study investigates regional sea surface temperature biases across 22 climate models and finds that they are linked to the large circulation system in the Atlantic Ocean. Improvements to climate models will need to consider the impact of remote biases on regional processes.
