IPCC-AR4 MPI-ECHAM5_T63L31 MPI-OM_GR1.5L40 20C3M run no.3: atmosphere 6 HOUR values MPImet/MaD Germany


Roeckner, Erich; Lautenschlager, Michael; Esch, Monika

The data represent 6 hourly values of a 20th century simulation (including year 2000) with observed anthropogenic forcings(CO2, CH4, N2O, CFCs, O3 and sulfate) initialized in year 2240 of the preindustrial control run. This is followed by a commitment experiment for the 21th century (years 2001-2100) with all concentrations fixed at their levels of the year 2000.
Data Sets with monthly mean values are also available.
Technical data to this experiment:
The experiment is using ECHAM5.2.02a coupeld to MPI-OM Vers. 1.0 GR1.5L40 The output from the model run: hurrikan.dkrz.de:/ut/m/m214002/EXP500/run524
Please note: experiment_name/acronym was renamed (27-JUN-2005, 20C_2 changed to 20C_3)
