Detailed Description

From the IPCC’s Fifth Reporting Period . The figure shows time series of September Arctic sea ice extent (5-year running mean) as projected by all CMIP5 models and their ensemble members under RCP8.5 (thin gray curves). The thick, colored curves correspond to the subset of 5 CMIP5 models (one member each) that were selected by Massonnet et al. (2012) on the basis of their ability to simulate recent sea ice observations.  Outputs from these 5 models were used to create the monthly median ice cover maps.
