Name
IPCC DDC AR4 GISS-AOM 20C3M run1
Acronym
GISS_AOM_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).
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
Starting 1850, 200 year spinup from Levitus, last 50 years with 1850 atmosphere. Observed GHGs and Boucher estimated sulfate aerosols from 1850 to 2000.
For this experiment there are 2 ensemble runs available.
