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 Pre-industrial
control experiment (picntrl).
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
Pre-industrial control experiment with CSIRO Mk 3.0 model, for model years 121 to 500.
For this experiment there are 2 ensemble runs available.
