CMIP6 Forcing Datasets (input4MIPs).
These data include all datasets published for 'input4MIPs.CMIP6.CMIP.PCMDI.PCMDI-AMIP-1-1-4' with the full Data Reference Syntax following the template 'activity_id.mip_era.target_mip.institution_id.source_id.realm.frequency.variable_id.grid_label'.

The PCMDI-AMIP 1.1.4: Merged SST based on UK MetOffice HadISST and NCEP OI2 (Based on Hurrell SST/sea ice consistency criteria applied to merged HadISST (1870-01 to 1981-10) & NCEP-0I2 (1981-11 to 2017-12)) climate model, released in 2018, includes the following components:
The model was run by the Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA 94550, USA (PCMDI) in native nominal resolutions: 1x1 degree.

Project: The forcing datasets (and boundary conditions) needed for CMIP6 experiments are being prepared by a number of different experts. Initially many of these datasets may only be available from those experts, but over time as part of the 'input4MIPs' activity most of them will be archived by PCMDI and served by the Earth System Grid Federation (https://esgf-node.llnl.gov/search/input4mips/ ).
