Projected interactions between sea ice concentrations and extreme wind events

Displays annual and decadal time series of mean monthly sea ice concentrations and proportion of days within a month exhibiting extreme wind events. Graphics can be displayed as bar or line plots. Plots are for a specific month in ten-year increments, with a maximum time selection of 1960 – 2099.

Wind values shown are any one of three different Global Climate Model (GCM) outputs. Sea ice values are a composite (five-model average) of GCM outputs.
