The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 6 (CMIP6) data from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) FGOALS-g3 model output for the "pre-industrial control" (piControl) experiment. These are available at the following frequencies: Amon, SImon and fx. 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).

Citable as:  Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) (2020): WCRP CMIP6: Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) FGOALS-g3 model output for the "piControl" experiment. Centre for Environmental Data Analysis, date of citation.
