Slide 29: GCM outputs for 2100 (II)
Looking at the B2 (low emissions) scenario, we can see that we are likely to have a significant effect on the temperature, particularly in the northern hemisphere. The two boxes in each region represent the summer and winter (Dec-Feb and Jul-Aug) temperatures. It is particularly worth noting that the temperature increase in the northern hemisphere is particularly high, and this is likely to be accompanied by melting of ice caps and glaciers. Furthermore, virtually no place on the planet is likely to have a decrease in temperature, with only a few places limited to a single degree in temperature rise.
