  1. Tropically (latitudes within 30 of the Equator) averaged quantities related to the global hydrological cycle. For the observations, the GSMaP (v7) retrieval is used for precipitation, P; precipitable water, PW, is calculated only over the ocean for which observational estimates are taken from GMI. Top-of-atmosphere net solar, Isolar, and thermal infrared Ithermal irradiances are taken from the CERES SYN1deg daily Terra and Aqua product. For precipitation and precipitable water, ARPEGE-NH is excluded from the calculation of the multi-model mean
