Name
IPCC DDC AR4 MRI-CGCM2.3.2 1PCTTO4X run1
Acronym
MRI_CGCM2.3.2_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.
The initial condition is identical to the beginning of PDcntrl experiment. The CO2 concentration starts increasing (from 348 ppmv) with 1%/year (compound) rate and reaches quadrupled (1392 ppmv) at 140th year, and is fixed quadrupled after that. The other forcing is same as in the PDcntrl experiment (CH4 = 1650 ppmv, N2O = 306 ppbv, solar constant = 1367 W/m2)
For this experiment there is only one run available.
