Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-CCSM3 PICNTRL run1'

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-CCSM3 PICNTRL run1
Acronym
NCAR_CCSM3_PICNTRL_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 climate of the Pre-industrial
control experiment (picntrl).
_
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
_
This simulation was initiated from year 280 of CCSM3 model run b30.017 and executed on
hardware bluesky.ucar.edu.
_
Physical constants used for derived data:
Lv (latent heat of evaporation): 2.501e6 J kg-1
Lf (latent heat of fusion ): 3.337e5 J kg-1
r[h2o] (density of water ): 1000 kg m-3
g2kg (grams to kilograms ): 1000 g kg-1
_
Integrations were performed by NCAR and CRIEPI with support and facilities provided
by NSF, DOE, MEXT and ESC/JAMSTEC.
_
For this experiment there are 2 ensemble runs available.
