CCSM CVWG Experiments: CAM3 T42 TOGA Ensemble

Description 5 member T42 TOGA (Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere) ensemble forced by tropical (20N-20S) observed time-varying SSTs from January 1950 through September 2001. Climatological seasonal cycle of SSTs used polewards of 30°, with linear interpolation between 20° and 30°. Note: These runs have been extended through 2009. See the CAM3-extensions page here.
