The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, Phase 6 (CMIP6) data from the the CNRM-CERFACS team CNRM-ESM2-1 model output for the "pre-industrial control (spin-up)" (piControl-spinup) experiment. These are available at the following frequencies: Amon, Lmon, Ofx, Omon and SImon. The runs included the ensemble member: r1i1p1f2.

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).

The the CNRM-CERFACS team team consisted of the following agencies: Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques (CNRM) and Centre Européen de Recherche et Formation Avancée en Calcul Scientifique (CERFACS).

The official CMIP6 Citation, and its associated DOI, is provided as an online resource linked to this record.
