Figure 5 is colour coded global map for mean change of temperature from 2081 -2100, relative to 1986 - 2005, for RCP2.6 scenarios. It typically shows temperature increases of about 0.5 -1 °C over the oceans, North and South of the Equator, 1-1.5°C over continents and 1.5 - 3 °C over the Arctic.

Figure 5 is colour coded global map for mean change of temperature from 2081 -2100, relative to 1986 - 2005, for RCP28.5 scenarios. It typically shows temperature increases of about 1-2 °C over the oceans, south of the equator, 2-3 °C over the oceans North of the equator, 4-7 °C over most of the continents and up to 11 °C over the Arctic.
