Abstract

In this study, 2 climate variables (monthly mean temperature and monthly precipitation amount) of the output from MIROC3-2-hires climate model were downscaled and compared its performance with a bias correction method. Results showed that values from MIROC3-2-hires climate model overestimated the monthly accumulated precipitation and represented well the monthly mean temperature in eastern Mongolia during the control period from 1971 to 2000. The cumulative density function made it possible to compensate the difference by 36% for precipitation and by 16% for temperature
