Abstract

WCRP CMIP5: NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (NASA GMAO) GEOS-5 model output for the 10-year hindcast/prediction initialized in year 1990 (decadal1990) experiment. These data cover the following realms: aerosol, atmos, land, landIce, ocean and seaIce; at the following frequency: mon. The runs included the ensemble members: r1i1p1, r2i1p1 and r3i1p1.

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).
