Metadata for 'IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-PCM SRESA2 run3'

General Information

Name
IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-PCM SRESA2 run3
Acronym
NCAR_PCM_SRESA2_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 A2 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. SRA2: SRES A2)
- 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_SRA2_1_G_hur850

This simulation was initiated from year 1999-08 of PCM1 model run B05.08 and executed on hardware cheetah.ccs.ornl.gov.

For this experiment there are 4 ensemble runs available.
