Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 GISS-ER SRESA1B run2'

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 GISS-ER SRESA1B run2
Acronym
GISS_ER_SRESA1B_2
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.
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. MPEH5: Max-Planck-Institute/Echam5)
- scenario acronym (e.g. SRA1B: SRES A1B)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- format identifier (e.g. N: netCDF, G: GRIB)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
--> example: MPEH5_SRA1B_1_G_hur850
For this experiment there are 5 ensemble runs available.
