Figure 27: Response of the Greenland ice sheet to three climatic warming scenarios during the third millennium expressed in equivalent changes of global sea level. The curve labels refer to the mean temperature rise over Greenland by 3000 AD as predicted by two-dimensional climate and ocean model forced by greenhouse gas concen-tration rises until 2130 AD and kept constant after that. Note that projected temperatures over Greenland are generally greater globally averaged temperatures by a factor of 1.2 to 3.1 for the models used in Chapter 11. [Based on Figure 11.16]
