Data Access
Data access links are provided to the peer nodes of the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF: http://esgf.org) and to the long-term data archive of the World Data Center for Climate (WDCC: http://www.wdc-climate.de). ESGF data access requires a valid openID and WDCC data access a CERA account (see http://cera-www.dkrz.de/).

ESGF Data Access (openID)
There is currently no directly linked data available, please take a look at the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) gateways, e.g. http://esgf-data.dkrz.de.

Summary
'historical' is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5
(http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/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.

3.2 historical (3.2 Historical) - Version 1: Simulation of recent past (1850 to 2005). Impose changing conditions (consistent with observations).
