ENSEMBLES STREAM2 IPSLCM4_v2 20C3M run1, monthly values

Dufresne, Jean-Louis

These data represent monthly values (monthly mean) of
selected variables for ENSEMBLES
(http://www.ensembles-eu.org). The list of output variables can be
found in: http://ensembles.wdc-climate.de/output-variables.
ENSEMBLES 20th century transient experiment (1860-2000 followed
by IPCC A1B 2001-2100 and A1B 450ppm stabilization experiment)
was initiated from year 1270 of the control preindustrial
simulation when equilibrium was reached (corresponds to nominal
year 1860 of 20C3M). Forcing agents included:
CO2,CH4,N2O,O3,CFC11(including other CFCs and HFCs),CFC12;
sulfate(Boucher). Additional forcings due to changes in land-use.
These datasets are available in netCDF format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. IPCM4: Institut Pierre Simon Laplace)
- scenario acronym (e.g. SRA1B: SRES A1B)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- time interval (MM:monthly mean, DM:daily mean, DC:diurnal cycle, 6H:6 hourly, 12h:12hourly)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
example: IPCM4_SRA1B_1_MM_hur850
For this experiment 3 ensemble runs were carried out.
Technical data to this experiment:
IPSLCM4_v2 (2007) : atmosphere : LMDZ4 (LMDZ4_V3_4, 144x143x19) ; ocean ORCA2 (ipsl_cm4_v2, 2x2L31); sea ice LIM (ipsl_cm4_v2); land ORCHIDEE (orchidee_1_9_3)
The output from the model run is stored in: gaya.idris.fr:/cache2/rces452/IGCM_OUT/IPSLCM4_v2/LU20C1
