Abstract

This dataset contains model simulated data to study the response of Asian summer climate to AMO-like (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation) sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies using the Intermediate General Circulation Model version 4 (IGCM4; Joshi et al., 2015). This dataset also contains the AMO SST patterns from seven Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5)/Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project Phase (PMIP3) global climate models (Ratna et al., 2019), which are used to explore the sensitivity of the atmospheric response to the SST pattern.

These data were collected as part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) funded 'An integrated data-model study of interactions between tropical monsoons and extra-tropical climate variability and extremes (INTEGRATE)' project (2016-2020) at the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia. The project studied the interactions between tropics and extratropical climate variability.

Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

This data were generated using the Intermediate General Circulation Model version 4 (IGCM4; Joshi et al., 2015). The model is integrated for 55 years (idealised years) and monthly mean output are generated for the analysis and saved as NetCDF format using Climate Data Operator (CDO). The data were then sent to the Centre for Environmental Data Anaylsis (CEDA) for archiving.
