Abstract

Data for Figure 3.21 from Chapter 3 of the Working Group I (WGI) Contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6).

Figure 3.21 shows the seasonal evolution of observed and simulated Arctic and Antarctic sea ice area (SIA) over 1979-2017.

Figure subpanels
---------------------------------------------------
The figure has several subplots, but they are unidentified, so the data is stored in the parent directory.

List of data provided
---------------------------------------------------
This dataset contains Sea Ice Area anomalies over 1979-2017 relative to the 1979-2000 means from:

- Observations (OSISAF, NASA Team, and Bootstrap)
- Historical simulations from CMIP5 and CMIP6 multi-model means
- Natural only simulations from CMIP5 and CMIP6 multi-model means

---------------------------------------------------
Data provided in relation to figure
---------------------------------------------------
- *_arctic_* files are used for the plots on the left side of the figure
- *_antarctic_* files are used for the plots on the right side of the figure
- *_OBS_NASATeam* files are used for the first row of the plot
- *_OBS_Bootstrap* are used for the second row of the plot
- *_OBS_OSISAF* are used for the third row of the plot
- *_ALL_CMIP5* are used in the fourth row of the plot
- *_ALL_CMIP6* are used in the fifth row of the plot
- *_NAT_CMIP5* are used in the sixth row of the plot
- *_NAT_CMIP6* are used in the seventh row of the plot

---------------------------------------------------
Notes on reproducing the figure from the provided data
---------------------------------------------------
The significance are for the grey dots, it's nan or 1 values. The data has to be overplotted to colored squares. Grey dots indicate multi-model mean anomalies stronger than inter-model spread (beyond ± 1 standard deviation).

The coordinates of the data are indices, but in global attributes 'comments' of each file there are relations of indices to months, since months are the y coordinate.

Abstract

Seasonal evolution of observed and simulated Arctic (left) and Antarctic (right) sea ice area (SIA) over 1979–2017. SIA anomalies relative to the 1979–2000 means from observations (OBS from OSISAF, NASA Team, and Bootstrap, top) and historical (ALL, middle) and natural only (NAT, bottom) simulations from CMIP5 and CMIP6 multi-models. These anomalies were obtained by computing non-overlapping three-year mean SIA anomalies for March (February for Antarctic SIA), June, September, and December separately. CMIP5 historical simulations are extended by using RCP4.5 scenario simulations after 2005 while CMIP6 historical simulations are extended by using SSP2-4.5 scenario simulations after 2014. CMIP5 NAT simulations end in 2012. Numbers in brackets represent the number of models used. The multi-model mean is obtained by taking the ensemble mean for each model first and then averaging over models. Grey dots indicate multi-model mean anomalies stronger than inter-model spread (beyond ± 1 standard deviation). Results remain very similar when based on sea ice extent (SIE – not shown). Units: 106 km2. Further details on data sources and processing are available in the chapter data table (Table 3.SM.1).
