The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2). SRES_A2 storyline describes a very heterogeneous world with the underlying theme of self-reliance and preservation of local identities. It results in this scenario a continous increasing population together with a slower economic growth and technological change. The model developed by the Center for Climate System Resaerch/ National Institute for Enviromental Studies in Tokyo consists of the atmospheric component which has vertical resolution of 20 levels and the triangular truncation at wavenumber 21 (T21). The ocean model has 17 vertical levels and the same resolution. ). . The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
