IPCC Assessment Report 5 and Coupled Model Intercomparison Project data sets
Description
These data belong to two projects:
1) to the Assessment Report No 5 of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR5) and
2) to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project No 5 (CMIP5).
CMIP5 is executed by the Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison (PCMDI) on behalf of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). Most of the data is replicated between the three data nodes at the World Data Centre for Climate (WDCC), the British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC), and the PCMDI. The project embraces the simulations with about 30 climate models of about 20 institutes worldwide.
