PRIMAVERA Project data from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) MPI-ESM1-2-HR model output for the "coupled control with fixed 1950's forcing (HighResMIP equivalent of pre-industrial control)" (control-1950) experiment. These are available at the following frequencies: Prim6hr, PrimOday, PrimOmon, PrimSIday, Primday and PrimdayPt. The runs included the ensemble member: r1i1p1f1.

PRIMAVERA was a European Union Horizon2020 (grant agreement 641727) project.
