Abstract

WCRP CMIP5: National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) CCSM4 model output for the amip4xCO2 experiment. These data cover the following realms: atmos, land and ocean; at the following frequencies: fx and mon. The runs included the ensemble members: r0i0p0 and r1i1p1.

The WCRP Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 5 (CMIP5), was a global climate model intercomparison project, coordinated by PCMDI (Program For Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison) on behalf of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and provided input for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report (AR5).
