Figure 9.9: Change in annual mean sea-ice thickness between the periods 1971 to 1990 and 2041 to 2060 as simulated by four of the most recent coupled models. The upper panels show thickness changes in the Northern Hemisphere, the lower panels show changes in the Southern Hemisphere. All models were run with similar forcing scenarios: historical greenhouse gas and aerosol loading, then future forcing as per the IS92a scenario. The colour bar indicates thickness change in metres - negative values indicate a decrease in future ice thickness.
