Projected regional average change in seasonal and annual mean temperature and precipitation for the IPCC SREX regions for CMIP5 and CMIP3. The data were produced in 2014 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group II (WGII) Chapter 21 author team for the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). Regional average seasonal and annual mean temperature and precipitation for the period 2071-2100 are compared to a baseline of 1961-1990 for CMIP5 and CMIP3 General Circulation Model (GCM) projections. The data compare the range of projections from 35 Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) ensemble under four Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP) scenarios compared with GCM projections from 22 CMIP3 ensemble under three Special Report on Emission Scenarios (SRES) scenarios. Regional averages are based on SREX regions defined by the IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (IPCC, 2012: also known as "SREX").
