General Information

Name
IPCC-DDC_CSIRO_SRES_A1FI: 140 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Commenwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Australia
Acronym
CSIRO_SRES_A1FI
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_A1 storyline describes a future world of very rapid economic
growth, global population that peaks in mid-century and declines
thereafter and the rapid introduction of new and more efficient
technologies.
It is distinguished by their technological emphasis:
A1FI: fossil intensiv,
A1T : non-fossil energy sources and
A1B : a balance across all sources.
The Mark 2 CSIRO coupled global climate model consists of the
atmospheric component which has 9 vertical levels with a R21
horizontal resolution and the ocean component which was based
on the GFDL code.
Mark2_CSIRO (http://www.cmar.csiro.au/e-print/open/hennessy_1998a.html#ccm )
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and
sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above
mentioned scenario.
