Fig. 5

Global mean ocean temperature changes at four different depth layers from the preindustrial control simulation in the MIROC3.2 (medres) AOGCM experiments. The changes are plotted as functions of the surface air temperature change. a 1pctCO2 experiment (every year for 1–140 years). b abrupt4xCO2 experiment (blue, every year for 1–150 years) and const4xCO2 experiment (red: every 20-year average for 141–3680 years)
