IPCC DDC AR4 MRI-CGCM2.3.2 SRESB1 run2

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 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

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-B1 for 1990-2100.

For this experiment there are 5 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/.
