Summary
The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified
into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2).
SRES_A2 storyline describes a very heterogeneous world
with the underlying theme of self-reliance and preservation
of local identities. It results in this scenario a continous
increasing population together with a slower economic growth
and technological change.
The model consists of the atmospheric component which based
on the weather forecast model of ECMWF. The atmosphere component
is the standard model version of a 19-level hybrid sigma-pressure
coordinate system.
The ocean component is a model which computes with
isopycnal coordinates.
ECHAM4/OPYC3(http://ipcc-data.org/gcm/models/tar/echam4opyc3.html).
This data set is an enlargement of the IPCC data set and provides
additionel meteorological parameters.
The run produces monthly averaged values of the variabeles.
Changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur
dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
The model run starts in 1990 from the results of the scenario run
GSDIO (Experiment "EH4OPYC_22723GSDIO") which has been run with
observed conditions for the time period 1860-1990.

Accuracy report
model data
The first record is incorrect for those variables that represent means over the
output intervall (e.g. TEMP2, DEWS2, precipitation, radiation quantities and more)
Quality control of data sets for data publication (www.std-doi.de):
1)Control of timeseries:
-creation of minimum, maximum timeseries monthly means plots of every record 02.06.04
-control of timeseries 03.06.04
2)Control of 2D-plot samples:
-timestep(s) or record(s): jan/jul 2001 monthly means
-topic(s): PREC, wind10, TMP, MSLP, DSWF
