CCSM CVWG Experiments: CAM3 T85 TOGA Ensemble

Description 5 member T85 TOGA (Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere) ensemble forced by tropical (20N-20S) observed time-varying SSTs from January 1950 through November 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.

(8/9/05) The fifth ensemble member has finished, this ensemble is now complete.

The following file was corrupted, and removed:

In the mass store data transfer process some files were incompletely written to the mass store, resulting in files that fully or partially contain 0's. The files are not recoverable. The following files are known to have this problem:
The parts of these files that are not filled with 0's can be used.

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