ENSEMBLES STREAM2 IPSLCM4_v2 SRA1B run1, 6-hourly instantaneous values

Dufresne, Jean-Louis

These data represent 6-hourly instantaneous values 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.

The A1B scenario is the part of the A1 family which describes a
balance across all energy sources. The experiment has been initialized
in year 2000 of the 20C3M_1 run and continues until year 2100 with
anthropogenic forcings included: CO2,CH4,N2O,CFC11(including other
CFCs and HFCs),CFC12; sulfate (Boucher) according to A1B. 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: mercure.ccc.cea.fr:/dmnfs09/cont003/p86denv/IGCM_OUT/IPSLCM4_v2/LUA1B1
