CCM1 General Circulation Model Output Data Set for Paleoclimate Simulations of the Last 14,000 Years
Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_96-027

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The data set consists of CCM1 General Circulation model output for
paleoclimatic simulations over the past 18,000 years. CCM1 Experiment 25 for
21k, 16k, 14k, 11k, 6k, and 0k, monthly data.

CCM1 is a 40x48 grid with 7.5 degrees of longitude and about 4.4 degrees of
latitude. The following are the gaussian latitudes used for an R15 grid. These
latitudes represent the center of the grid box.
