IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-CCSM3 PICNTRL run1

National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

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 climate of the Pre-industrial
control experiment (picntrl).
_
These datasets are available in netCDF and GRIB format.
_
This simulation was initiated from year 280 of CCSM3 model run b30.017 and executed on
hardware bluesky.ucar.edu.
_
Physical constants used for derived data:
Lv (latent heat of evaporation): 2.501e6 J kg-1
Lf (latent heat of fusion ): 3.337e5 J kg-1
r[h2o] (density of water ): 1000 kg m-3
g2kg (grams to kilograms ): 1000 g kg-1
_
Integrations were performed by NCAR and CRIEPI with support and facilities provided
by NSF, DOE, MEXT and ESC/JAMSTEC.
_
For this experiment there are 2 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/.
