WCRP CMIP5: The CSIRO-BOM team ACCESS1-0 model output for the AMIP (amip) experiment. These data cover the following realms: aerosol, atmos, land and landIce; at the following frequencies: 6hr, day, fx and mon. The runs included the ensemble members: r0i0p0 and r1i1p1.

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).

The CSIRO-BOM team consisted of the following agencies: The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO, Australia) and Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).
