General Information

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CGCM3.1-T47_(med-res) 1PCTTO4X run1
Acronym
CGCM3.1_T47_1PCTTO4X_1
Project
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 1%/year CO2 increase experiment (to quadrupling).

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.

This idealized scenario began from the 1850 initial condition used in all other CCCma integrations and has CO2 increasing at a rate of 1% per year from its initial value of 288ppm. The integration proceeded for 140 years (through model year 1989) at which point CO2 concentration was fixed at roughly four times its initial value (1160ppm) and the integration continued for an additional 150 years (to model year 2139).

For this experiment there is only one run available.
