Name
IPCC DDC AR4 BCCR_BCM2.0 1PCTTO2X run1
Acronym
BCCR_BCM2.0_1PCTTO2X_1
Project(s)
IPCC-DDC_AR4 (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : Assessment Report Four data sets)
Summary
These data represent monthly averaged values of selected variables for the
Data Distribution Centre (DDC) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
(see also http://www.ipcc-data.org/)
The model output prepared for IPCC Fourth Assessment climate of the 1%year
CO2 increase experiment (to doubling).
This simulation depends on 1%/year co2 increase to 70 years to CO2 doubling,
then continues to 150 years, data were output starting with nominal data of January 1980.
For this experiment there is 1 ensemble run available.
