Short summary
We analyze simulations of the Pacific Ocean oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) from 11 Earth system model contributions to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5, focusing on the mean state, climate change projections, and interannual variability. We analyse biases with respect to observations and consistency of results across simulations.
