Fig. 4

Spatial distribution of 95th percentile of daily maximum wet-bulb temperature. TWmax (°C) from the MRCM ensemble of simulations driven by three GCMs (Southwest Asia: CCSM, MPI, NorESM, South Asia, and Eastern China: CCSM, MPI, ACCESS) for each GHG scenario: historical (a), RCP4.5 (b), and RCP8.5 (c). All simulations include irrigation. TWmax is maximum daily value from 6-h running average for each day (bias correction described in the Methods setion). TWmax is presented over land areas only within the simulations domains. Land areas, outside simulations domains, are shown in gray. All ocean areas, within or outside simulations domains, are shown in blue. The figure was created using the NCAR Command Language (https://www.ncl.ucar.edu)
