Due to an error in the model specifications provided to the IPCC DDC for all CSIRO SRES runs, the labels for model skin temperatures and model air temperatures were reversed. This error was discovered not before September 19th 2002 and the correction then was applied immediately. As a consequence (air) temperature data sets retrieved from the archive prior to end of September 2002 will contain the skin temperature data instead of the air temperature. The results based on these data will be erroneous.
consistent as the model is
