General Information

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(hi-res) PICNTRL run1
Acronym
MIROC3.2_hr_PICNTRL_1
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 climate of the Pre-industrial
control experiment (picntrl).

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.

This run was initiated after 109-year spin-up of the coupled model from an arbitrary chosen
initial condition (a snapshot result of a previous version of the model). This run as well as
the preceding spinup was forced by fixed external conditions for the year 1900, including solar
and volcanic forcings, GHGs concentration, various aerosols emissions and landuse.

For this experiment there is only one run available.
