Name
IPCC-DDC_NCARPCM_SRES_B2: 100 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS National Center for Atmospheric Research USA
Acronym
NCARPCM_SRES_B2
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_B2 storyline describes a world in which the emphasis is on
local solutions to economic, social and enviromental sustainability.
The global population is increasing at a lower rate than A2. It has
an intermediate level of economic development and a less rapid and
more diverse technological change than in A1 and B1.
The atmospheric component is the massively parallel version of
the NCAR community Climate Model version 3.2 (CCM3) and the
ocean component uses the POP (Parallel Ocean Program) model
with an average resolution of 2/3 degree and near the equator
of approximately 1/2 degree.
NCAR-PCM (http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/pcm/ )
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur
dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
