We thank the climate modelling groups for producing and making available their modelling results and the International Institute for Applied System Analysis for hosting the IPCC AR5 Scenario Database. For CMIP, the U.S. Department of Energy`s Climate Model Diagnostic and Comparison Program provided coordination support and managed the development of the software infrastructure in collaboration with the Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals.
