Metadata for 'IPCC-DDC FAR GISS TRANSIENT CONTROL RUN'

General Information

Name
IPCC-DDC FAR GISS TRANSIENT CONTROL RUN
Acronym
IPCC-DDC_FAR_GISS_CTRL
Project
IPCC-DDC_FAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : First Assessment Report data sets )
Summary
This dataset contains outputs from climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) for use in assessing the impact of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations on the global climate. A 100-year transient run was made sometime in the mid-1980s. Monthly means and 10-year monthly, seasonal, and annual climatologies are available for numerous parameters. Most parameters are only available at the surface. There were also made a global equilibrium run (1XCO2 and 2XCO2) in 1984 and GISS "Scenario A " and "Scenario B" run sometime in the mid-1980s. Parameter and format informations are given in the additional informations.
