General Information

Name
IPCC-DDC_CCCma_CGCM2_SRES_A2: 201 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis Canada
Acronym
CCCma_CGCM2_SRES_A2
Project
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 atmospheric component AGCM2 is a spectral model with
triangular truncation at wave no. 32 and 10 vertical levels.
The ocean model component based on the GFDL MOM 1.1 code
with 29 vertical levels and has a isopycnal / eddy stirring
parameterization (Gent and McWilliams, 1990).
CGCM2 (http://ec.gc.ca/ccmac-cccma/default.asp?lang=En&n=40D6024E-1 ).
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and
sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above
mentioned scenario.
These data belongs to a set of three ensemble runs, with the
CCCma-model, using the SRES_A2 scenario. They provide monthly
averaged values of selected variables for the IPCC-DDC.
