Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G 20C3M run1'

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G 20C3M run1
Acronym
ECHO_G_20C3M_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 20th Century experiment (20C3M).
_
Spinup: 6y coupled spinup with ocean restart files from end of year 199 from a preindustrial control
run performed at the FUB; the latter sim. initialized with Levitus 94 (oce). Anthropogenic (GHGs,
sulfate aerosol direct and first indirect effects) and natural forcing (solar irradiance and volcanc
activity implemented through varying solar constant) are used for the 20C3M simulations.
_
For this experiment there are 5 ensemble runs available.
