General Information

Name
IPCC-DDC_NCARPCM_SRES_A1B: 120 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS National Center for Atmospheric Research USA
Acronym
NCARPCM_SRES_A1B
Project
IPCC-DDC_TAR (IPCC Data Distribution Centre : Third Assessment Report data sets)
Summary
The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified
into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2).
SRES_A1 storyline describes a future world of very rapid economic
growth, global population that peaks in mid-century and declines
thereafter and the rapid introduction of new and more efficient
technologies.
It is distinguished by their technological emphasis:
A1FI: fossil intensiv
A1T : non-fossil energy sources
A1B : a balance across all sources.
It is a parallel climate model (PCM) and consists of the
atmospheric component which is the parallel version of NCAR
Community Climate Model Vers.3.2 (CCM3) and the ocean
component which is the POP (Parallel Ocean Program) model.
NCARPCM (http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/pcm/ )
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and
sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above
mentioned scenario.
