ENSEMBLES METO-HC-HADGEM1 1PTO2X run1, daily values

Johns, Tim C.

These data represent instantanious daily 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%/year CO2 increase experiment (1PCTTO2X).

Start from the beginning of the control run (1859 conditions). Atmospheric CO2 increased at 1%/year for 70 years and then held constant.

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. SRA2: SRES A2)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- time interval (MM:daily 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_SRA2_1_DM_hur850

For this experiment 1 ensemble run was carried out.
