IPCC-DDC_HADCM3_SRES_B2: 150 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research - UK Met Office


Johns, Tim C. et al.

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 Hadley Centre Circulation Model is a 3-dim AOGCM described
by (Gordon et al.,2000 and Pope et al.,2000).
The atmospheric component has a 19 levels horizontal resolution,
comparable with spectral resolution of T42, while the ocean
component has a 20 levels resolution.
HADCM3 (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/modelling-systems/unified-model/climate-models/hadcm3 ).
The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur
dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
