General Information

Name
ENSEMBLES STREAM2 EGMAM2 SRA1B run3, monthly mean values
Project
ENSEMBLES (Production of seasonal to decadal hindcasts and climate change scenarios)
Summary
These data represent monthly values (monthly mean,
annual cycle) of selected
variables for ENSEMBLES (http://www.ensembles-eu.org). The
list of output variables can be found in:
http://ensembles.wdc-climate.de/output-variables.

The model was further developed since ENSEMBLES stream 1 by including
a sulfate aerosole transport scheme (Feichter et al, 1997),
varying ozone concentrations and land use changes (land use
data from ENSEMBLES project:
http://www.cnrm.meteo.fr/ensembles).

The A1B scenario is the part of the A1 family which describes a
balance across all energy sources. The experiment is initialized in
year 2000 of the 20C3M_3 run and continues until year 2100 with anthropogenic forcings (CO2,
CH4, N2O, CFCs) according to A1B. Additionally, sulphur emissions
are used to run a sulfate transport scheme.

The datasets are available in netCDF format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (FUBEMA: Freie Universitaet Berlin / EGMAM (=ECHO-G with Middle Atmosphere and Messy))
- scenario acronym (SRA1B)
- run number (3: run 3)
- time interval (MM:monthly mean, DM:daily mean, DC:diurnal cycle, 6H:6 hourly, 12h:12hourly)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
--> example: FUBEMA2_SRA1B_3_DM_hur850

For this experiment 1 run was carried out.

Technical data to this experiment:
The experiment used AGCM MA/ECHAM4 (T30L39) coupled to OGCM HOPE-G (T42 with equator refinement, L20), and was run on a NEC SX-6 (hurrikan.dkrz.de).
