Precipitation Driver Response Model Intercomparison Project data sets 2013-2021


Andrews, Tim et al.

Data output from the Precipitation Driver Response Model Intercomparison Project (PDRMIP). A set of 6 core experiments (a base, co2x2, ch4x3, solar, bcx10, sulx5 where the solar experiment has increased incoming solar radiation), 5 regional experiments (bcx10asia, sulx10asia, sulx10eur, sulred, sulasiared) and 7 phase 2 experiments (base2, cfc12, cfc11, n2o1p, ozone, lndus, bcslt) have been run by one or more of the participating models; CanESM2, MPI-ESM, NorESM1, NCAR-CESM1-CAM4, NCAR-CESM1-CAM5, MIROC-SPRINTARS, HadGEM2, HadGEM3, GISS-E2-R, IPSL-CM5A, ECHAM-HAM. Each of the experiments has been run (for the most part) both in coupled and fixed sst ocean setups. Time designations varry from model to model, however, all models have ran the coupled ocean experiments for 100 years and 15 years in the fixed sst experiments. Outputs varry between models, but include 2D and 3D monthly variables, 2D daily variables and fixed 2D fields.
