Technical Summary of the Working Group I Contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report - data for Figure TS.8 v20230523

Status: Ongoing
Publication State: Preview
Publication Date:


Data for Figure TS.8 from the Technical Summary of the Working Group I (WGI) Contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6).

Figure TS.13 shows observed, simulated and projected changes compared to the 1995–2014 average in four key indicators of the climate system through to 2100 differentiated by Shared Socio-economic Pathway (SSP) scenario.
The intent of this figure is to show how future emissions choices impact key, iconic large-scale indicators and to highlight that our collective choices matter.
