Monthly sea ice extent maps for 2091-2100 from GCMs

Monthly maps of sea ice extent for the last decade of the 21st century as projected by general circulation models (GCMs)

Detailed Description

Monthly maps of sea ice extent for the last decade of the 21st century as projected by general circulation models (GCMs).  Each row in the figure shows future ice conditions based on a different level (scenario) of future greenhouse gas emissions, termed a representative concentration pathway (RCP). The maps are centered on the North Pole with the north Atlantic Ocean at the bottom. Publication associated with this figure: Douglas, D. C. and T. C. Atwood. 2017. Uncertainties in forecasting the response of polar bears to global climate change.
