GISS Climate Model Outputs for Carbon Dioxide Studies
Entry ID: NCAR_DS318.4

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains outputs from climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) for use in assessing the impact of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations on the global climate. A global equilibrium run (1XCO2 and 2XCO2) was made in 1984. A 100-year transient run and GISS "Scenario A" and "Scenario B" runs were made sometime in the mid-1980s. Monthly means and 10-year monthly, seasonal, and annual climatologies are available for numerous parameters, depending on the specific model run. The grid is a global 36x24 grid and most parameters are only available at the surface.
