Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G SRESA1B run1'

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G SRESA1B run1
Acronym
ECHO_G_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/)
_
The model output prepared for IPCC Fourth Assessment SRES A1B experiment.
For this experiment there are 2 ensemble runs available.
_
Spinup: restart files from end of experiment 20C3M (corresponding realisation). Anthropogenic (GHGs,
sulfate aerosol direct and first indirect effects) and natural forcing (solar irradiance and
volcanic activity implemented through varying solar constant) are used for the 20C3M simulations.
