IPCC DDC AR4 MRI-CGCM2.3.2 SRESA1B run1

Meteorological Research Institute (MRI)

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 A1B experiment.
For this experiment there are 5 ensemble runs available.

The initial condition is taken from the state of respective year 1990 in the 20C3M run. The forcing of the experiment includes greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O and CFCs) and sulfate aerosol direct effects, which are based on IPCC SRES-A1B for 1990-2100. This experiment is extended until 2300 with holding the concentrations fixed at 2100 level.

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