General Information

Name
HC01GG14 - GHG:GREENHOUSE GAS INTEGRATION (0.5%)
Acronym
HC01GG14
Project
IPCC-DDC_SAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : Second Assessment Report data sets )
Summary
Here the greenhouse gas forcing is increased gradually to represent the observed changes in forcing due to all the greenhouse gases from 1860 to 1990.
Greenhouse Gas Integration (0.5%) (GHG):
The 0.5 % CO2 simulations set up on initial data taken from the respective member of the 1.0 % simulations 130 years in time from the start. This point corresponds to the simulated "real" year 1990. From 1990 to 2100 they use a 0.5 per cent per year compounded increase in concentrations (a rather larger forcing scenario than is represented by the IS92a emissions scenario).
The IPCC Data Distribution Centre (DDC) distributes data of 4 ensemble runs. This experiment represents member #4 of the ensemble.
The climatology constructed from the 240-year CTL run serves as a reference for the time-dependent forcing experiments.
These data represent monthly averaged surface values of selected variables for the IPCC-Data Distribution Centre. (see also http://www.ipcc-data.org/ )
