IPCC DDC AR4 CCSR-MIROC3.2_(med-res) SRESB1 run2

Nozawa, Toru

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 B1 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. SRB1: SRES B1)
- 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_SRB1_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 B1 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/.
