The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified
into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2).
SRES_B2 storyline describes a world in which the emphasis is on
local solutions to economic, social and enviromental sustainability.
The global population is increasing at a lower rate than A2. It has
an intermediate level of economic development and a less rapid and
more diverse technological change than in A1 and B1.
The atmospheric component solves the primitive equations using
a spectral transform method, GFDL_R30 means a rhomboidal 30
truncation and the ocean component solves the primitive equation
of motion using the Boussinesq, rigid-lid and hydrostatic
approximation and based on GFDL Modular Ocean Model version 1.
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur
dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
