From: Scenario dependence of future changes in climate extremes under 1.5 °C and 2 °C global warming

Figure 5

Global- and regional-land average changes of (a) TXx (unit: °C), (b) RX5 day (unit: mm), and (c) R10 (unit: days) caused by an additional 0.5 °C warming from 1.5 °C to 2 °C in the RCP8.5_FixA scenario (Green) (left y-axis) and ratios of their changes in the RCP8.5 (Red) and RCP4.5 (Black) to RCP8.5_FixA scenarios (right y-axis). The error bar denotes two standard deviation, respectively. ENA (East North America, 30 °N–55 °N, 45 °W–100 °W), NSA (Northwest South America, 0–12 °N, 47 °W–80 °W), EBR (East Brazil, 30 °N–55 °N, 35 °W–50 °W), WEU (West Europe, 37 °N–69 °N, 10 °W–43 °E), CAF (Central Africa, 18 °S–12 °N, 15 °W–50 °E), ECH (East China, 20 °N–40 °N, 105 °E–125 °E), SAS (South Asia, 8 °N–29 °N, 70 °E–93 °E), and SEA (Southeast Asia, 10 °S–20 °N, 95 °E–153 °E).
