ENSEMBLES IPSL-CM4 1PCTTO4X run1, daily values

Dufresne, Jean-Louis

Experiment
Summary
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 was prepared for the IPCC Fourth Assessment climate of the 1%year CO2 increase experiment (to quadrupling).

The simulation is started in 1860 with an annual increase of 1% until CO2 quadrupling. In the year 2001 the CO2 concentration were held constant. All other concentrations remain at their preindustrial levels (nominally year 1860).

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: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: IPCM4_SRA2_1_MM_hur850

For this experiment 1 ensemble run was carried out.
