Name
IPCC-DDC_CSIRO_SRES_A2: 140 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Commenwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Australia
Acronym
CSIRO_SRES_A2
Project(s)
IPCC-DDC_TAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : Third Assessment Report data sets)
Summary
The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified
into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2).
SRES_A2 storyline describes a very heterogeneous world
with the underlying theme of self-reliance and preservation
of local identities. It results in this scenario a continous
increasing population together with a slower economic growth
and technological change.
The Mark 2 CSIRO coupled global climate model consists of the
atmospheric component which has 9 vertical levels with a R21
horizontal resolution and the ocean component which was based
on the GFDL code.
M2CSIRO (http://www.cmar.csiro.au/e-print/open/hennessy_1998a.html#ccm ).
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and
sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above
mentioned scenario.

Accuracy report
Due to an error in the model specifications provided to the IPCC DDC for all CSIRO
SRES runs, the labels for model skin temperatures and model air temperatures were reversed.
was applied immediately.
As a consequence (air) temperature data sets retrieved from the archive prior to
end of September 2002 will contain the skin temperature data instead of the air
temperature.
The results based on these data will be erroneous.
Quality control of data sets for data publication (www.std-doi.de):
1)Control of timeseries:
-creation of minimum, maximum timeseries plots of every record 06.05.04
-control of timeseries 06.05.04
2)Control of 2D-plot samples:
-timestep(s) or record(s): jan/jul 2001
-topic(s): PREC, WIND10, TMP, MSLP, DSWF
