Efforts to model and predict long-term variations in climate-based on scientific understanding of climatological processes have grown rapidly in their sophistication to the point that models can be used to develop reasonable expectations of regional climate change. This is important because our ability to assess the potential consequences of a changing climate for particular ecosystems or regions depends on having realistic expectations about the kinds and severity of change to which a region may be exposed.The fifth phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) is a collaborative climate modeling research effort coordinated by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). This is the most recent phase (2009–2013) of the [...]

CMIP5 model output collections are widely used in climate change research to improve modeling efforts by assessing differences in modeling approaches and underlying drivers, to assess the potential exposure of social and ecological systems to expected climate change, and for a multitude of outreach and educational applications.
