Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 CGCM3.1-T47_(med-res) SRESA1B run1'

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CGCM3.1-T47_(med-res) SRESA1B run1
Acronym
CGCM3.1_T47_SRESA1B_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/)
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
For this experiment there are 3 ensemble runs available.
This model run continues from the end of the 20th century simulation with GHG
and aerosol loadings for the IPCC SRES A1B scenario as tabulated in the IPCC
Third Assessment Report, Appendix II. The CO2 concentrations are from the
Bern-CC model (Contribution of Working Group I to the Third Assesment Report
of IPCC, p808) and the aerosol loadings are from O. Boucher, Laboratoire d`Optique
Atmospherique, France. For years 2101-2300, all GHG concentrations and the aerosol
loading are held constant at the values obtained by extrapolation to year 2101.
