Name
IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-PCM 20C3M run1
Acronym
NCAR_PCM_20C3M_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 20th Century experiment (20C3M).
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
This simulation was initiated from year 1890-01 of PCM1 model run B06.19 and executed on hardware blackforest.ucar.edu.
For this experiment there are 4 ensemble runs available.
