Global Mean Temperature Anomalies (RCPs)

Figure 4.2

This figure appears in chapter 4 of the Climate Science Special Report: The Fourth National Climate Assessment: Volume I report.

Global mean surface temperature anomalies (°F) relative to 1976–2005 for four RCP scenarios, 2.6 (green), 4.5 (yellow), 6.0 (orange), and 8.5 (red). Each line represents an individual simulation from the CMIP5 archive. Every RCP-based simulation with annual or monthly temperature outputs available was used here. The values shown here were calculated in 0.5°C increments; since not every simulation reaches the next 0.5°C increment before end of century, many lines terminate before 2100.
