### Earth's Energy Imbalance: Maps

Note: Depending on your input choices, plots may take 5-10 seconds to generate. Please be patient.

#### Input Elements

**Map type:****Anomalies:**Average over a specified**mean period**and**time interval**and relative to a given**base period****Trends:**Change of a specified**mean period**over a specified**time interval**based on local linear trends**ESD:**Ensemble standard deviation over five runs for a specified mean period (ESD is computed for**each**such period; the mean of these maps is used). Base period and time interval are irrelevant.**Pick "none" for "Run B"**. For single runs, the ensemble standard deviation of a related ensemble is used.

**Run A:**Pick only lines that start with '*' (**ptv**means**prescribed time varying**)**Run B:**Unless "none" is chosen, the difference map "Run A - Run B" is shown, where Run B is the long-term linear trend of the control run (obtained by using linear regression separately for each month of the year).**Quantity:**Choose from available diagnostics**Mean period:**Any monthly, seasonal (3 month or 6 month) or annual mean**Time interval**: Years over which data means are averaged or trends are found; if the mean period straddles 2 years, fill in the*later*year for begin and end. The time interval will be**automatically truncated**from both ends to the period the model actually ran.**Base period**(not used for trends, mean): Time interval to which anomalies are relative
