happi CCCma CanAM4


Scinocca, John F.

Global HAPPI-MIP protocol data based on the CanAM4 [1] AGCM developed by the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma).
This CERA experiment includes data of 100 AMIP simulations of the period 2006-2015, 100 AMIP-like simulations of 2106-2115 representing a climate warmer by 1.5°C than under pre-industrial conditions (1861-1880) and 100 AMIP-like simulations of 2106-2115 representing a climate warmer by 2.0°C than under pre-industrial conditions (1861-1880).
