Extended Data Fig. 1

(a) Eleven-year-moving averaged time series of the changes (relative to the control-run climatology) in Arctic (67o–90oN, red) and global-mean (magenta) annual surface air temperature (Tas), Arctic-minus-global annual Tas difference (black), and Arctic annual sea-ice concentration (SIC, blue) from the 1% CO2 run (solid lines) and FixedIce run (dashed lines). (b, c) CESM1-simulated changes (relative to the control-run climatology) averaged over years 131–150 as a function of month in Arctic sea-ice concentration (SIC, in % area, gray bars) and surface net shortwave (SW) radiation (red), upward longwave (LW) radiation (magenta), and sensible plus latent heat fluxes (blue) from the (b) 1% CO2 run and (c) FixedIce run.
