ENSEMBLES CNRM-CM3 20C3M run4, daily values

Royer, Jean-Francois

These data represent daily values (daily mean, instantaneous daily output, diurnal cycle) 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 ocean and sea ice initial states were those of year 100 of a control simulation (CT4) with the same model. Solar, volcanic variability and land use changes are taken into account.
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. SRA2: SRES A2)
- 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_SRA2_1_MM_hur850

For this experiment 2 ensemble runs and 4 additional runs (run numbers 3 to 6) were carried out.

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