Abstract

The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 6 (CMIP6) data from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) GFDL-AM4 model output for the "AMIP" (amip) experiment. These are available at the following frequencies: AERmon, Amon, CFmon and Emon. The runs included the ensemble member: r1i1p1f1.

CMIP6 was a global climate model intercomparison project, coordinated by PCMDI (Program For Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison) on behalf of the WCRP and provided input for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th Assessment Report (AR6).
