Name
IPCC-DDC FAR GISS SCENARIO A
Acronym

Project(s)
IPCC-DDC_FAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : First Assessment Report data sets )
Summary
This dataset contains outputs from climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) for use in assessing the impact of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations on the global climate. A GISS "Scenario A" run was made sometime in the mid-1980s. Monthly means and 10-year monthly, seasonal, and annual climatologies are available for numerous parameters. Most parameters are only available at the surface. There were also made a global equilibrium run (1XCO2 and 2XCO2) in 1984, a 100-year transient run and GISS "Scenario B" run sometime in the mid-1980s. Parameter and format informations are given in the additional informations.
