CMIP5 Multi-model Ensembles of Sea Ice Concentration projections Multi-model ensembles of sea ice concentration based on projections from twenty-eight Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) global climate models are available for 1900-2100. Specifically, the 5th, 25th, 50th, 75th and 95th percentiles of the monthly, seasonal and annual ensembles of sea ice concentration as represented as the percentage (%) of grid cell area, are available for the historical time period, 1900-2005, and for emission scenarios, RCP2.6, RCP4.5 and RCP8.5, for 2006-2100. Note: Projections among climate models can vary because of differences in their underlying representation of earth system processes. Thus, the use of a multi-model ensemble approach has been demonstrated in recent scientific literature to likely provide better projected climate change information. 2018-09-06 2018-10-02 Environment and Climate Change Canada ec.ccds.info-info.dscc.ec@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyProjections; climate; climate change; percentiles; ensembles; climate model; sea ice; cmip5Weather and ClimateProvide Climate Information Products and ServicesExpand Scientific Knowledge for Climate Monitoring and PredictionInternationalClimateClimate change View Data MartHTML http://dd.weather.gc.ca/climate/cmip5 View Data MartHTML http://dd.meteo.gc.ca/climate/cmip5 Climate Data ViewerHTML https://climate-viewer.canada.ca/climate-maps.html Climate Data ViewerHTML https://visualiseur-climatique.canada.ca/cartes-climatiques.html Climate Data Extraction ToolHTML https://climate-change.canada.ca/climate-data/#/cmip5-data GeoMet WMS (EN)WMS https://geo.weather.gc.ca/geomet-climate?service=WMS&version=1.3.0&request=GetCapabilities GeoMet WMS (FR)WMS https://geo.weather.gc.ca/geomet-climate?lang=fr&service=WMS&version=1.3.0&request=GetCapabilities GeoMet WCS (EN)GeoTIF https://geo.weather.gc.ca/geomet-climate?service=WCS&version=2.0.1&request=GetCapabilities GeoMet WCS (FR)GeoTIF https://geo.weather.gc.ca/geomet-climate?lang=fr&service=WCS&version=2.0.1&request=GetCapabilities Canadian Climate Data and Scenarios ENNetCDF http://climate-scenarios.canada.ca/index.php?page=main Canadian Climate Data and Scenarios FRNetCDF http://scenarios-climatiques.canada.ca/index.php?page=main Data Collection MethodologyPDF http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/scientificknowledge/cmip5-multi-model-ensembles-of-sea-ice-concentration-projections/CMIP5_-_READ_ME_Technical_Doc_EN.pdf Data Collection MethodologyPDF http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/scientificknowledge/cmip5-multi-model-ensembles-of-sea-ice-concentration-projections/CMIP5_-_READ_ME_Technical_Doc_FR.pdf View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/scientificknowledge/cmip5-multi-model-ensembles-of-sea-ice-concentration-projections View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/climate/scientificknowledge/cmip5-multi-model-ensembles-of-sea-ice-concentration-projections?lang=fr
