The IPCC is regularly publishing the worldwide most comprehensive scientifically based assessment reports on climate change. The generation of the data base for the IPCC/AR5 report has been coordinated in the WCRP project CMIP5. In the framework of that project, based on the newest versions of the Earth system model MPI-ESM of the Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology, climate simulations have been performed on the platforms of the DKRZ in order to generate the German contribution to the IPCC/AR5 data base. The results of almost 500 experiments have been processed according to the CMIP5 data protocol, and, after an in-depth quality check, are accessible without restriction through the international ESGF CMIP5 archives. Extensive meta data facilitate the search and download, as well as comparison and analyses of the data.
This project contains the CMIP5-standard-compliant data based on all 3 configurations of the MPI-ESM which were created in the DKRZ project '555'. This includes a number of CFMIP simulations as part of the CMIP5 experiment list, as well as data from the LUCID project based on MPI-ESM-LR.
