Abstract

WCRP CMIP5: National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) CCSM4 model output for the natural-only historical simulation (historicalNat) experiment. These data cover the following realms: atmos, land, landIce, ocean and seaIce; at the following frequencies: day, fx and mon. The runs included the ensemble members: r0i0p0, r1i1p1, r2i1p1, r4i1p1 and r6i1p1.

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).
