ENSEMBLES CNRM-CM3 1PCTTO2X run1, 6h and 12h instantaneous values

Royer, Jean-Francois

These data represent 6 hourly and 12 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 1PCTTO2X simulation(included year 2080) was initiated from nominal year 1970 of preindustriel run,when equilibrium was reached (corresponds to nominal year 1860 of CO2-doubling experiment). Forcing agents included: CO2, CH4, N2O, O3, CFC11 (including other CFCs and HFCs), CFC12; sulfate(Boucher), BC, sea salt, desert dust aerosols.

These datasets are available in netCDF format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. CNCM3: CNRM/CM3)
- 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: CNCM3_SRA1B_1_MM_hur850

CNRM-CM3 (2004): atmosphere: Arpege-Climat v3 (T42L45, cy 22b+); ocean: OPA8.1; sea ice: Gelato 3.10; river routing: TRIP
