Extended Data Fig. 2: Bottom water temperatures from corrected model (HC) have mean spatial pattern and long-term trend matching observations (WOD).

Extended Data Fig. 2

Maps show long-term mean bottom water temperatures from uncorrected HC (a, \({T}_{{b}_{{\rm{H}}C}}\)), bias- and trend-corrected HC (b, \({T}_{{b}_{{\rm{H}}C}}^{\prime}\)), and re-weighted WOD data (c, \({T}_{{b}_{{\rm{W}}OD}}^{* }\)). d) Time series of spatial mean annual bottom water temperature from uncorrected HC (thick blue line), corrected HC (blue circles), and WOD (yellow line). Bias correction replaces the spatial mean annual temperature of HC with that of WOD data (Eq. (3)), preserving the spatial variability in warming. Thin blue line is linear regression of corrected HC or WOD (1958–2012) temperatures versus year (slope = 0.021oC y−1; p < 10−12; R2 = 0.65). Uncorrected HC temperature has no significant trend versus year.
