MPI-M Earth System Modelling Framework: millennium solar forcing experiment (sensitivity run 1)

Jungclaus, Johann

Experiment
Summary
The data represent monthly average values from the solar forcing experiment for the
MPI-M Millennium Project
(http://www.mpimet.mpg.de/en/wissenschaft/working-groups/millennium.html)
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
http://cera-www.dkrz.de/WDCC/ui/Entry.jsp?acronym=mil0001) except that it uses a
time-dependent reconstruction of solar forcing.

The model is run for the years 800 to 2000 under exclusive forcing by
the variation of the total solar irradiance (TSI) at the outer boundary
of the atmosphere. The TSI reconstruction is based on the same
unpublished data used for mil0005, with the following changes:

The model is run for the years 800 to 2000 under exclusive forcing by
the variation of the total solar irradiance (TSI) at the outer boundary
of the atmosphere. TSI reconstruction is based on unpublished data,
courtesy N. Krivova (2008) - as in mil0005, that has been upscaled to match a
variability (max-min) of 0.25% of the standard TSI value of 1367 W/m2
used in ECHAM5. This upscaled variability compares to
outdated estimates of solar variability that have been used for climate
modelling experiments in the past.

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
