Postprocessed Data Description Monthly atmospheric data only. One variable per file, 51 years per file (1950-01 -> 2000-12). The following variables are available: CLDLOW, FLNS, FLNT, FLUT, FSNS, FSNT, FSNTOA, LHFLX, OMEGA, PRECC, PRECL, PS, PSL, SHFLX, T, TAUX, TAUY, TREFHT, TS, U, UBOT, V, VBOT, Z3, Z3@500hPa.
Notes These sets of runs are referred to as the CAM3 T42 RADATM runs. These runs used climatological SSTs along with time-varying IPCC forcings from 1950-2000. (IPCC forcings include volcanic, greenhouse gases, aerosols, and solar external forcings.)

Note: These experiments were run with cam version 2.0.2dev63 (=CAM3.0).

atmospheric history file nomenclature: "h0" in the file name (ex. denotes monthly data, "h1" denotes daily data, "h2" denotes 4X daily data.
