Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(hi-res) 20C3M run1
Acronym
MIROC3.2_hr_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.
This run was initiated after 109-year spin-up of the coupled model from an arbitrary chosen initial condition (a snapshot result of a previous version of the model). The preceding spinup was forced by fixed external conditions for the year 1900, including solar and volcanic forcings, GHGs concentration, various aerosols emissions and landuse, while all those conditions were changed according to historical data during the 20C in the course of this run.
For this experiment there is only one run available.
