Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(med-res) 1PCTTO4X run1
Acronym
MIROC3.2_mr_1PCTTO4X_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 1%/year CO2 increase experiment (to quadrupling).
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
This run was initiated after 300-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 1850, including solar and volcanic forcings, GHGs concentration, various aerosols emissions and land use, while only the CO2 concentration was changed from those conditions in the course of this run.
For this experiment there are 3 ensemble runs available.
