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, FLUT, FSNS, FSNTOA, LHFLX, OMEGA, PRECC, PRECL, PS, PSL, SHFLX, T, TAUX, TAUY, TREFHT, TS, U, UBOT, V, VBOT, Z3.
Notes These sets of runs are referred to as the CAM3 T42 vanilla-AMIP (VAMIP) runs. They are called "vanilla" as they had no external forcings beyond the supplied SST field.

The official end dates of the 5 ensemble members are: September 2001 (runs 1,3,4), January 2001 (run 2), March 2001 (run 5).

The following files were corrupted, and removed:

atmospheric history file nomenclature: "h0" in the file name (ex. denotes monthly data, "h1" denotes daily data, "h2" denotes 4X daily data, "h3" (run #5 only) denotes daily data.
