IPCC DDC SAR and TAR: ECHAM4/OPYC3 model description

Additional Info
This additional info contains information of an archived IPCC DDC TAR web page describing the ECHAM4/OPYC model:

The coupled global model ECHAM4/OPYC3 was developed in co-operation between the Max-Planck-Institute for Meteorology (MPI) and Deutsches Klimarechenzentrum (DKRZ) in Hamburg, Germany. Both models are documented, separately:
- Roeckner, E., Arpe, K., Bengtsson, L., Christoph, M., Claussen, M., Dümenil, L., et al. (1996). The atmospheric general circulation model ECHAM-4: Model description and simulation of present-day climate. Report / Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie, 218. https://doi.org/10.17617/2.1781494
- Oberhuber, Josef Maximilian (1993). The OPYC Ocean General Circulation Model. World Data Center for Climate (WDCC) at DKRZ. https://doi.org/10.2312/WDCC/DKRZ_Report_No07

The model basics are available from the existing documentation.
