General Information

Name
IPCC-DDC_CSIRO_SRES_B2: 140 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Commenwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Australia
Acronym
CSIRO_SRES_B2
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_B2 storyline describes a world in which the emphasis is on
local solutions to economic, social and enviromental sustainability.
The global population is increasing at a lower rate than A2. It has
an intermediate level of economic development and a less rapid and
more diverse technological change than in A1 and B1.
The Mark 2 CSIRO coupled global climate model consists of the atmospheric
component which has 9 vertical levels with an R21 horizontal resolution
and the ocean component which was based on the GFDL code.
M2CSIRO (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.
