Chart: Projected Changes in Global Sea Surface Temperature

by
IPCC

Projected changes in annual averaged, globally averaged, surface ocean temperature based on 12 Atmosphere–Ocean General Circulation Models (AOGCMs) from the CMIP5 multi-model ensemble, under 21st century scenarios RCP2.6, RCP4.5, RCP6.0 and RCP8.5. Shading indicates the 90% range of projected annual global mean surface temperature anomalies. Anomalies computed against the 1986–2005 average from the historical simulations of each model.
