General Information

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(med-res) SRESB1 run3
Acronym
MIROC3.2_mr_SRESB1_3
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 SRES B1 experiment.

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. MPEH5: Max-Planck-Institute/Echam5)
- scenario acronym (e.g. SRB1: SRES B1)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- format identifier (e.g. N: netCDF, G: GRIB)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
--> example: MPEH5_SRB1_1_G_hur850

This run was initiated from the end of the corresponding 20C3M run of CCSR/NIES/FRCGC (the same resolution as this run, realization = 2). The conditions including GHGs concentration and various aerosols emissions were changed according to the IPCC SRES B1 scenario in the course of this run.

For this experiment there are 3 ensemble runs available.
