Abstract:
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environmental Program to assess scientific information on climate change. The IPCC publishes reports that summarize the state of the science. At the request of the JSC / CLIVAR Working Group on Coupled Modeling (WGCM), the PCMDI is archiving coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model output to support the Working Group 1 component of the IPCC's 4th Assessment Report. The data archived by the PCMDI from each participating coupled ocean-atmosphere model is a subset of that model's output. Working Group 1 of the IPCC focuses on the physical climate system -- atmosphere, land surface, ocean and sea ice -- and the choice of variables archived at the PCMDI reflects this focus. This is the portal for the IPCC 4th Assessment Model Output database, recently renamed WCRP CMIP3 multi-model database (World Climate Research Programme, Coupled Model Intercomparison Project): https://esg.llnl.gov:8443/index.jsp. The Earth System Grid (ESG) integrates supercomputers with large-scale data and analysis servers located at numerous national labs and research centers to create a powerful environment for next generation climate research. This portal is the primary point of entry into the ESG. This database consists of model output data generated for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 4th Assessment. The data output from the following models are available: BCC-CM1, China BCCR-BCM2.0, Norway CCSM3, USA CGCM3,1 (T47), Canada CGCM3,1 (T63), Canada CNRM-CM3, France CSIRO-Mk3.0, Australia ECHAM5/MPI-OM, Germany ECHO-G, Germany/Korea FGOALS-g1.0, China GFDL-CM2.0, USA GFDL-CM2.1, USA GISS-AOM, USA GISS-EH, USA GISS-ER, USA INM-CM3.0, Russia IPSL-CM4, France MIROC3.2(hires), Japan MIROC3.2(medres), Japan MRI-CGCM2.3.2, Japan PCM, USA UKMO-HadCM3, UK UKMO-HadGEM1, UK The following scenarios are available: 1%/year CO2 increase (to doubling), 1pctto2x 1%/year CO2 increase (to quadrupling), 1pctto4x 2xCO2 equilibrium, 2xco2 550 ppm stabilization (SRES B1), sresb1 720 ppm stabilization (SRES A1B), sresa1b AMIP, amip SRES A2, sresa2 Climate of the 20th Century, 20c3m Committed climate change, commit Pre-industrial control, picntrl Present-day control, pdcntrl Slab ocean control, slabcntl All of the data are available online (registration is required to download the data), through ftp, and through OPeNDAP. The GFDL model data are also available from: http://nomads.gfdl.noaa.gov/ The NCAR CCSM and PCM model data are also available from: http://www.earthsystemgrid.org/
