CMIP6 MPI-ESM1-2-LR historical - RCM-forcing data

Brune, Sebastian et al.

RCM forcing data from the 20 realisations (r11i1p1f1-r30i1p1f1) of the CMIP6 experiment historical, conducted with the MPI-ESM1-2-LR on the Mistral supercomputer of the DKRZ. The experiment covers the years 1850 to 2014 and branches from the CMIP6 piControl experiment.
The file format is gzip-compressed GRIB (*.grb.gz).

CMIP6 paper:

Experiment description historical:
Simulation of recent past (1850 to 2014). Impose changing conditions (consistent with observations). Should be initialised from a point early enough in the pre-industrial control run to ensure that the end of all the perturbed runs branching from the end of this historical run end before the end of the control. Only one ensemble member is requested but modelling groups are strongly encouraged to submit at least three ensemble members of their CMIP historical simulation.
