ECHO-G SRES-A2 simulation with a new albedo scheme 1991-2100: atmosphere 12 HOUR raw data

Benkel, Andreas

Experiment
Summary

Target period: 1991 to 2100 AD.
Initial conditions: Restart files from the transient simulation ECHOG_AN_1500-1990_12H in 1990
external forcing 1991-2100: carbon dioxide concentracions according to IPCC SRES A2 scenario
Simulation uses a different albedo scheme - mainly different with a different description of the
surface-temperature depending snow albedo over non-forested areas, according to the
Roesch (2000) snow-albedo scheme. The sea-ice albedo scheme is replaced by another sea-ice
albedo scheme, which is still surface temperature depending but takes into account the
effect of melt ponds. For information about the new snow and sea ice albedo scheme refer
to Koeltzow et al. (2003) and Koeltzow (2007). The new scheme is applied to the northern hemisphere explitly.
Datasets with monthly average values are also available.
Technical data to this experiment: The experiment is using ECHO-g: ECHAM4 (f90) + HOPE-g
and was run on a NEC-SX (hurrikan)
