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 percent year CO2 increase
experiment (to doubling).
_
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
_
Spinup: 5y coupled spinup with ocean restart file from end of year 305 of a coupled
control run (expid c04).
GHGs constant: CO2=1.01**(y-1990)*353 ppmv CH4=310 ppb N2O=280pptv CFC11=484pptv CFC12=60pptv
HCFC113=15pptv CFC115=5pptv HCFC22=122pptv CCL4=146pptv ,
(ipcc/sacc values for 1990), solar constant of 1365 W/m**2. CO2 constant after 2060.
_
For this experiment there is only one run available.
