Scatterplot and associated legend representing the global climate model using various colour coded emissions scenarios. The scatterplot measures precipitation change () in relation to mean temperature change (ºC) represented on the Y and X axes respectively. Seven emissions scenarios are compared to Natural climate variability which remains between a -5 and 5 % precipitation change and a -1 and 1 (ºC) temperature change. The most extreme emissions scenarios predict a 35 change in precipitation and a 12 (ºC) temperature change.
Provides an example of a scenario map for an ensemble scenario. The maximum annual temperature change by the 2080s is projected for Canada with variation in change colour-coded from 0-20 (ºC). The minimum temperature change in Canada will be 7ºC in Coastal areas whilst the Canadian Arctic will experience up to 20ºC in change.
A box-and-whisker plot demonstrating Minimum temperature change up to 14(ºC) for the 2020’s (2), 2050’s (4) and 2080’s (approximately 7). The whiskers represent the maximum and minimum values possible. Minimums are respectively, in ºC, 1.5, 2.3 and 3.5. Maximums are respectively, in ºC, 3.5, 7.3 and 12.6.
