Forecast verification of air temperature conditions in Ukraine during 2001-2009 is analysed. The data from outputs of GFDL’s model forced by the A2, A1B, and B1 emission scenarios are compared with observed data for these years. It is shown that for all scenarios the model provides most high-quality outcomes in comparison with observed temperature for Southern Ukraine.
