                         future climate change accurately only if they can reproduce 
                         seasonal cycle accurately. Further, seasonal changes are much 
                         larger than the changes even in long period of centuries. Thus it 
                         is unwise to ignore large ones compared to small climate change. 
                         In this paper, we determine how accurately a suite of ten coupled 
                         general circulation models reproduce the observed seasonal cycle 
                         in rainfall of the tropics. The seasonal cycles in rainfall of 
                         global tropics are known as monsoons. We found that the models can 
                         reasonably reproduce the seasonal cycle in rainfall, thus are 
                         useful in climate prediction and simulation of global monsoons.",
