ENSEMBLES EGMAM SRESA1B run2, daily values

Niehörster, Falk

These data represent daily values (daily mean, instantaneous daily output) 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 corresponds to the IPCC AR4 "720 ppm stabilization experiment (SRES A1B)".

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 grenhouse gas forcing (CO2, CH4, N2O, CFC-11*, CFC-12) according to the A1B scenario. The experiment is extended until year 2200 with all concentrations fixed at their levels of year 2100 (stabilization experiment).

The datasets are available in netCDF format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (FUBEMA: Freie Universitaet Berlin / EGMAM (=ECHO-G with Middle Atmosphere and Messy))
- scenario acronym (SRA1B)
- run number (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: FUBEMA_SRA1B_1_MM_hur850

For this experiment 3 ensemble runs were carried out.

Technical data to this experiment:
The experiment used AGCM MA/ECHAM4 (T30L39) coupled to OGCM HOPE-G (T42 with equator refinement, L20), and was run on a NEC SX-6 (hurrikan.dkrz.de).
