CMIP6 CMIP DKRZ MPI-ESM1-2-HR amip_r2i1p1f1 and amip_r3i1p1f1 - RCM-forcing data


Schupfner, Martin et al.

RCM forcing data from 2 realisations (r2i1p1f1, r3i1p1f1) of the
CMIP6/CMIP DECK experiment amip, conducted with the MPI-ESM1-2-HR on the
Mistral supercomputer of the DKRZ. The experiment covers the years 1979 to 2014. The two variants have been created by modulating the horizontal diffusion coefficient of the top model layer by a factor 1.00001 (amip_r2i1p1f1) and 0.99999 (amip_r3i1p1f1) for the year 1979.

The file format is gzip-compressed GRIB (*.grb.gz).

Experiment description amip:
An atmosphere only climate simulation using prescribed sea surface temperature and sea ice concentrations but with other conditions as in the Historical simulation.
