Projected winter Arctic sea-ice decline coupled to Eurasian circulation

Arctic sea-ice cover will diminish rapidly under global warming, but its rate of retreat in boreal winter shows large intermodel differences across the models involved in Phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5). When a model simulates a larger sea-ice decline, how does the circulation outside the Arctic change?
