rcp85 is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 ( https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5 ). CMIP5 is meant to provide a framework for coordinated climate change experiments for the next five years and thus includes simulations for assessment in the AR5 as well as others that extend beyond the AR5.
4.2 rcp85 (4.2 RCP8.5) - Version 1: Future projection (2006-2100) forced by RCP8.5. RCP8.5 is a representative concentration pathway which approximately results in a radiative forcing of 8.5 W m-2 at year 2100, relative to pre-industrial conditions. RCPs are time-dependent, consistent projections of emissions and concentrations of radiatively active gases and particles.

WDC Climate performed checks on the validity of metadata and data accessed at WDC Climate (WDCC).
WDCC recommends to check all downloaded data files by their tracking_id with the CMIP5 Data
Validation Service at http://cera-www.dkrz.de/WDCC/CMIP5/Tracking.jsp?tracking_id=tracking_id
tracking_id can be found in the file headers (e.g. using ncdump -h).
