Abstract

The Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project (ACCMIP) was organized under the auspices of Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate (AC&C), a project of International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) and Stratospheric Processes And their Role in Climate (SPARC) under International Geosphere Bisosphere Programme (IGBP) and World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). The Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Model Intercomparison Project (ACC-MIP) consists of several sets of simulations that have were designed to facilitate useful evaluation and comparison of the AR5 (Intergovernmental Committee on Climate Change Assessment Report 5) transient climate model simulations.

This dataset contains measurements from climate simulations from GFDL of the 20th century and the future projections, which output feedback between dynamics, chemistry and radiation in every model time step. The data are collected from running the latest set of ozone precursor emissions scenarios, which output tropospheric ozone changes from 1850 to 2100.

Title AM3, Atmospheric Component of the GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) Global Coupled Model deployed on GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) Computers
Abstract This computation involved: AM3, Atmospheric Component of the GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) Global Coupled Model deployed on GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) Computers. AM3 is the atmospheric component of the GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) global coupled model. It is a climate model with atmospheric chemistry modules, run in atmosphere-only mode; i.e. the model is driven by sea-surface temperature (SST) and sea-ice concentrations (SICs). AM3 is the atmospheric component of the GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) global coupled model. It is a climate model with atmospheric chemistry modules, run in atmosphere-only mode; i.e. the model is driven by sea-surface temperature (SST) and sea-ice concentrations (SICs).The model explores how changes in the levels and locations of ozone precursor emissions, (such as nitrogen oxides NO and NO; referred to as NO, carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including methane, could affect tropospheric ozone abundances, from the pre-industrial period to future projections. The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) is a laboratory in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR). Much current research within the laboratory is focused around the development of Earth System Models for assessment of natural and human-induced climate change. The GFDL has been utilizing High Performance Computing Systems for Numerical Modeling since the 1950s. The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) is a laboratory in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR). Much current research within the laboratory is focused around the development of Earth System Models for assessment of natural and human-induced climate change. The GFDL is located at Princeton University's Forrestal Campus in Princeton, NJ. Since March 2011, the GFDL no longer possesses an on-site supercomputer. They instead utilize a massively parallel Cray supercomputer with over 30,000 processor cores which is currently located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The GFDL has been utilizing High Performance Computing Systems for Numerical Modeling since the 1950s.
