Projected New Zealand-average temperatures relative to 1986-2005, for six IPCC 5th Assessment global climate models, and for the historical simulations (here 1971-2005) and four future simulations (RCPs 2.6, 4.5, 6.0 and 8.5). Individual models are shown by thin dotted or dashed or solid lines (as described in the inset legend), and the 6-model ensemble-average by thicker solid lines, all of which are coloured according to the RCP.
