MPI-M Earth System Modelling Framework: millennium land use change (maximum scenario) experiment

Jungclaus, Johann

The data represent 6-hourly, daily and monthly average values from the
land use change (maximum scenario) experiment for the MPI-M Millennium Project
using the comprehensive MPI-M Earth System Model
ECHAM5/JSBACH/MPI-OM/HAMOCC including the biogeophysical and
biogeochemical effects of an interactive carbon cycle. This experiment
is similar to the mil0001 control experiment (see except that it uses a
time-dependent reconstruction of vegetation cover (land use).

As an additional sensitivity study to mil0002, the prescribed, time-dependent vegetation
cover for this experiment between AD 800 and 1699 reflects an upper bound of uncertainty
(maximum land use change) around the buest guess land use maps used in mil0002 (J. Pongratz, C. Reick, T. Raddatz
and M. Claussen, 2008: A reconstruction of global agricultural areas and land cover
for the last millennium. Global Biogeochem. Cycles, in press), see
CERA experiment RECON_LAND_COVER_800-1992 for details
The land cover maps 1700 to 2100 are the same as in mil0002

Technical details:
The experiment used the following models/resolutions:
ECHAM5 (EH5) Version 5.4.01 at T31L19 resolution
JSBACH (JSB) at T31 resolution, one soil layer, 13 vegetation types
and four vegetation tiles per grid box
MPI-OM/HAMOCC Version 1.3.0 at GR3.0L40 resolution
The output from the experiment is archived at
