CCSM CVWG Experiments: CAM3 T85 RADATM Ensemble

Description 5 member ensemble forced by climatological SSTs and time-varying (1950-2000) volcanic, greenhouse gas, aerosol and solar forcings used in the CCSM3 "Climate of the 20th century" integrations. Note: These runs have been extended through 2008. See the CAM3-extensions page here.

Postprocessed Data Description --
Notes These sets of runs are referred to as the CAM3 T85 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 2.0.2dev70 (=CAM3.0).

atmospheric history file nomenclature: "h0" in the file name (ex. eul64x128_d63iamip_04.cam2.h0.1975-01.nc) denotes monthly data, "h1" denotes daily data.
