CCSM CVWG Experiments: CAM3 T85 IPCC GOGA Ensemble

Description 5 member T85 GOGA (Global Ocean Global Atmosphere) ensemble forced by global observed time-varying SSTs from January 1950 through December 2000 plus volcanic, greenhouse gas, aerosol and solar forcings used in the CCSM3 "Climate of the 20th century" integrations.

Postprocessed Data Description Monthly atmospheric data only. One variable per file, 51 years per file (1950-01 -> 2000-12). The following variables are available: LHFLX, PRECC, PRECL, PS, PSL, SHFLX, T, TREFHT, TS, U, UBOT, V, VBOT, Z3.
Notes These sets of runs are referred to as the CAM3 T85 IPCC-AMIP (IAMIP) runs. They are called "IPCC" as they had volcanic, greenhouse gases, aerosols, and solar external forcings, in addition to the supplied SST field.

atmospheric history file nomenclature: "h0" in the file name (ex. eul128x256_d67iamip.ES01.cam2.h0.1962-09.nc) denotes monthly data, "h1" denotes daily data, "h2" denotes 4X daily data.
