IPCC DDC AR4 BCCR-BCM2.0 PICNTRL run1

Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR)

Experiment
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 climate of the Pre-industrial
control experiment (picntrl).

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.

Experiment was initiated from model year 85 (nominal year 1850) of the control simulation (with
bcm_experiment_name: PC3). The time varying forcing agents were varied based upon observations
and reconstructions for the late 19th and 20th centuries. Varying forcing agents: CO2,CH4,N2O,
CFC11(including other CFCsand HFCs),CFC12 and sulfate aerosols (Boucher data, only direct effect).
Non-varying forcing agents: Background aerosols: black carbon,sea salt,desert dust, stratospheric
and tropospheric ozone, solar irradiance (1368 W/m2) and the distribution of land cover types.
No volcanic aerosols.

For this experiment there is only one run available.

Model output data for CMIP3 in higher temporal resolutions and further variables are available in ESGF at https://esgf-node.llnl.gov/search/cmip3/ .
