GFDL Climate Model Outputs for Carbon Dioxide Studies
Entry ID: NCAR_DS318.1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains model outputs from climate models at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL). The various model runs were made in 1989 (with one rerun in 1991). The model was an atmosphere-ocean coupled model, run first at R15 (48 by 40) global resolution and then later at R30 (96 by 80) global resolution. Control runs (1xCO2), 2xCO2, and 1% increase per year transient runs were made and values for numerous variables were output. DSS has decadal means for up to 100 model years, as well as daily values and monthly and seasonal means for shorter periods.
