Name
IPCC DDC AR4 UKMO-HadGEM 20C3M run2
Acronym
UKMO_HadGEM_20C3M_2
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.
The forcing of the experiment contains only Historic Anthropogenic Forcings.
For this experiment there is only one run available.
