Ocean acidification markers displayed in this dataviz project are
estimated on the surface, showing spatial variability that can be
explored in each of the oceanic basins from north to south
by latitudinal bands.
In each one of the oceanic basins select the variable and the scenario
from the dropdown menu associated with each basin. Minima in the y-axis refer
to the absolute minimum value for each variable in all scenarios, displaying
in this way changes in amplitude rather than absolute values.
This map displays latitudinal averaged means at 5° intervals. The historical period
estimates the averaged 1980-2000 time period as the mean of an ensemble of CMIP5
models, namely CESM1-BGC, CNRM-ESM1, GFDL-ESM2G, GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2-ES, IPSL-CM5A-LR,
IPSL-CM5A-MR, MPI-ESM-LR and MPI-ESM-MR.
Future scenarios are calculated as the averaged 2080-2100 time period in the
either RCP2.6 or RCP8.5 scenario, as the mean of several CMIP5 models. In
this case these models are: CNRM-ESM1, GFDL-ESM2G, GFDL-ESM2M, HadGEM2-ES, IPSL-CM5A-LR,
IPSL-CM5A-MR, MPI-ESM-LR and MPI-ESM-MR for RCP 2.6, plus CESM1-BGC for the RCP 8.5
