(see also http://www.ipcc-data.org/) The model output prepared for IPCC Fourth Assessment climate of the 1%year CO2 increase experiment (to doubling). These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format. This simulation depends on 1%/year co2 increase to 70 years to CO2 doubling, then continues to 150 years, data were output starting with nominal data of January 1980. 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/.
