Name
IPCC-DDC_NCARCSM_SRES_A2: 100 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS National Center for Atmospheric Research USA
Acronym
NCARCSM_SRES_A2
Project(s)
IPCC-DDC_TAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : Third Assessment Report data sets)
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 climate system model (CSM) is based on a framework that
divides the complete climate system into component models
connected by a coupler. Individual components are: ocean,
atmosphere, land and sea-ice.
NCAR-CSM (http://www.ccsm.ucar.edu/models/ ).
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and
sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above
mentioned scenario.
