Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G SRESA1B run2'

General Information

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 ECHO-G SRESA1B run2
Acronym
ECHO_G_SRESA1B_2
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 SRES A1B experiment.

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. MPEH5: Max-Planck-Institute/Echam5)
- scenario acronym (e.g. SRA1B: SRES A1B)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- format identifier (e.g. N: netCDF, G: GRIB)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
--> example: MPEH5_SRA1B_1_G_hur850

Spinup: restart files from end of experiment 20C3M (corresponding realisation). Anthropogenic (GHGs, sulfate aerosol direct and first indirect effects) and natural forcing (solar irradiance and volcanic activity implemented through varying solar constant) are used for the 20C3M simulations.

For this experiment there are 3 ensemble runs available.
