doi:10.26050/WDCC/HAPPI-global-CAM4-2degree

General Information

Name
Global HAPPI-MIP protocol data based on CAM4-2degree
Acronym
HAPPI-global-CAM4-2degree
Project
HAPPI (HAPPI-MIP international initiative)
Summary
Global HAPPI-MIP protocol data based on the CAM4[1]/CLM4 [2] (CAM4-2degree) AGCM developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research – Department of Energy (NCAR-DOE). CAM4/CLM4 is part of the CESM 1.0.4 model release [3].
This CERA experiment includes data of 521 AMIP simulations within the period 1979-2016, 501 AMIP-like simulations of 2106-2116 representing a climate warmer by 1.5°C than under pre-industrial conditions (1861-1880) and 501 AMIP-like simulations of 2106-2116 representing a climate warmer by 2.0°C than under pre-industrial conditions (1861-1880).
