. 2005 ). The strong relationships with sea surface temperatures (SSTs) allow estimates of column water vapor amounts since 1970 to be made and results indicate increases of about 4% over the global oceans, suggesting that water vapor feedback has led to a radiative effect of about 1.5 W m −2 ( Fasullo and Sun 2001 ), comparable to the radiative forcing of carbon dioxide increases ( Houghton et al. 2001 ). This provides direct evidence for strong water vapor feedback in climate change. The observed

the CRU land-based air temperature anomalies (CRUTEM2) can be found in Jones and Moberg (2003) . 3. Experiment design and results Figure 1 shows the simulation domain that also includes the Caribbean Sea, Mexico, and the southern part of Canada. The model domain was originally chosen as part of the Project to Intercompare Regional Climate Simulations (PIRCS; Takle et al. 1999 ) experiment 1c. A regional control simulation was carried out over the chosen domain from 1 July 1986 to 31 December
