Abstract

WCRP CMIP5: Nonhydrostatic Icosahedral Atmospheric Model (NI CAM) Group NICAM-09 model output for the aqua planet control (aquaControl) experiment. These data cover the following realm: atmos; at the following frequency: mon. The runs included the ensemble member: 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).
