Table 1 The spatial correlation coefficient of the annual mean temperature anomalies between paleo-proxy data (37) and the individual climate model.

The spatial correlation coefficient of the annual mean temperature anomalies between paleo-proxy data (37) and the individual climate model.. The second and third columns indicate the correlation coefficient and statistical significance, respectively. Statistically significant values, higher than 95% (p < 0.05), are in boldface.
