IPCC DDC AR4 NCAR-PCM 1PCTTO2X run3

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 1%year CO2 increase experiment (to doubling).

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. 1PTO2X: 1PCTTO2X)
- 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_1PTO2X_1_G_hur850

This simulation depends on 1%/year co2 increase to 70 years to CO2 doubling, then continues to 150 years, data were output starting with nominal data of January 1980.

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/.
