This project was funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (CE110001028). The authors would like to thank Andrew Lorrey and another anonymous reviewer for their thorough and informative reviews, which substantially improved this paper. Chris Gouramanis was partially supported by a National University Start-up Grant (WBS: R-109-000-223-133). Helen McGregor acknowledges funding from Australian Research Council Future Fellowship FT140100286. Steven Phipps was supported under the Australian Research Council's Special Research Initiative for the Antarctic Gateway Partnership (project ID SR140300001). Cameron Barr was supported by the ARC Discovery Grant DP150103875. We acknowledge the World Climate Research Programme's Working Group on Coupled Modelling, which is responsible for CMIP, and we thank the climate modelling groups (listed in the Supplement, Table S1, of this paper) for producing and making available their model output. For CMIP the U.S. Department of Energy's Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison provides coordinating support and led development of software infrastructure in partnership with the Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals. The PMIP3 data were made available through the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), which is supported by the Australian government. We acknowledge the international PMIP2 modelling groups for providing their data for analysis, the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) for collecting and archiving the model data. The PMIP2/MOTIF Data Archive is supported by CEA, CNRS, the EU project MOTIF (EVK2-CT-2002-00153) and the Programme National d'Etude de la Dynamique du Climat (PNEDC). Catherine Harvey is also thanked for her assistance in compiling the database of proxy records used in this and the former OZ-INTIMATE studies.
