ENSEMBLES BCCR-BCM2.0 1PCTTO2X run1, monthly mean values

Drange, Helge

These data represent monthly averaged 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 model output was prepared for the IPCC Fourth Assessment 1%_to2x experiment (1%/year CO2 increase experiment to doubling).

These datasets are available in NetCDF format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. MPEH5: Max-Planck-Institute/Echam5)
- scenario acronym (e.g. 1PTO2X: 1PCTTO2X)
- 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: MPEH5_1PTO2X_1_MM_hur850

For this experiment 1 ensemble run was carried out.

Technical data to this experiment:
BCM2.0, (2005):

ocean : NERSC-MICOM V1.0 (based on MICOM V2.8), 35 vertical layers, 1.5(E-W) X 0.5(N-S) deg. res. near equator with gradual transformation to square grid cells away from equator
sea ice : NERSC Sea Ice Model (Viscous-plastic + thermodynamic), 4 gridcells per ocean grid cell
land : ISBA ARPEGE V3 version
