IPCC-AR4 MPI-ECHAM5_T63L31 MPI-OM_GR1.5L40 SRESA1B run no.3: atmosphere monthly mean values MPImet/MaD Germany


Roeckner, Erich; Lautenschlager, Michael; Schneider, Heiko

The data represent monthly average values of selected variables for the Data Distribution Centre (DDC) of the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The A1B scenario is the part of the A1 family which describes a balance across all energy. The experiment has been initialized in year 2000 of the 20C_3 run and continues until year 2100 with anthropogenic forcings (CO2, CH4, N2O, CFCs, O3 and sulfate) according to A1B. The experiment is extended until year 2200 with all concentrations fixed at their levels of year 2100 (stabilization experiment). Datasets with higher resolution (6 hourly) are also available.
Technical data to this experiment:
The experiment is using ECHAM5.2.02a coupled to MPI-OM Vers. 1.0 GR1.5L40 and was run on a NEC-SX (hurrikan). The output from the model run: hurrikan.dkrz.de: /ut/k/k204097/EXP000/run010
