IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(med-res) SRESA2 run3

Nozawa, Toru

Experiment
Summary
These data represent monthly averaged values of selected variables for the Data Distribution Centre (DDC) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). (see also http://www.ipcc-data.org/)
The model output prepared for IPCC Fourth Assessment SRES A2 experiment.

These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
The dataset names are composed of
- centre/model acronym (e.g. MPEH5: Max-Planck-Institute/Echam5)
- scenario acronym (e.g. SRA2: SRES A2)
- run number (e.g. 1: run 1)
- format identifier (e.g. N: netCDF, G: GRIB)
- variable acronym [with level value] (e.g. hur850: relative humidity, 850 hPa)
--> example: MPEH5_SRA2_1_G_hur850

This run was initiated from the end of the corresponding 20C3M run of CCSR/NIES/FRCGC (the same resolution as this run, realization = 2). The conditions including GHGs concentration and various aerosols emissions were changed according to the IPCC SRES A2 scenario in the course of this run.

For this experiment there are 3 ensemble runs available.

Model output data for CMIP3 in higher temporal resolutions and further variables are available in ESGF at https://esgf-node.llnl.gov/search/cmip3/.
