Short summary
To bridge the gap between the global climate model (GCM) and local climate variables, a spatiotemporally distributed downscaling model was developed. The method was applied to the Poyang Lake watershed to analyze the precipitation changes in the 21th century. The results showed increasing heterogeneities in temporal and spatial distribution under future climate warming. Analyses with temperature increases showed that precipitation changes appeared significantly correlated to climate warming.
