Name
IPCC DDC AR4 MRI-CGCM2.3.2 SRESA2 run1
Acronym
MRI_CGCM2.3.2_SRESA2_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 SRES A2 experiment.
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
The initial condition is taken from the state of respective year 1990 in the 20C3M run. The forcing of the experiment includes greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O and CFCs) and sulfate aerosol direct effects, which are based on IPCC SRES-A2 for 1990-2100.
For this experiment there are 5 ensemble runs available.
