'historical' is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5
). 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.
3.2 historical (3.2 Historical) - Version 1: Simulation of recent past (1850 to 2005). Impose changing conditions (consistent with observations).

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).
