The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL cdm_data_type String Grid
attribute NC_GLOBAL cmor_version float 0.94
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String GFDL experiment name = CM2.1U-D4_1860-2000-AllForc_H5. PCMDI experiment name = 20C3M (run5). Initial conditions for this experiment were taken from 1 January of year 161 of the 1860 control model experiment named CM2.1U_Control-1860_D4. Several forcing agents varied during the 140 year duration of the CM2.1U-D4_1860-2000-AllForc_H5 experiment in a manner based upon observations and reconstructions for the late 19th and 20th centuries. The time varying forcing agents were atmospheric CO2, CH4, N2O, halons, tropospheric and stratospheric O3, anthropogenic tropospheric sulfates, black and organic carbon, volcanic aerosols, solar irradiance, and the distribution of land cover types. The direct effect of tropospheric aerosols is calculated by the model, but not the indirect effects.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This is monthly ocean forcing data, 1860-2000, run #5, from the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory's (GFDL) CM2.1 climate model, specifically: GFDL CM2.1, 20C3M (run5) climate of the 20th Century experiment (20C3M) output for IPCC AR4 and US CCSP.

In 2004, a new family of GFDL climate models (the CM2.x family) was first used to conduct climate research. The GFDL CM2.x models have become the workhorse model for GFDL's climate research. They are being applied to topics focusing on decadal-to-centennial (deccen) time scale issues (including multi-century control experiments and climate change projections), as well as to seasonal-to-interannual (si) problems, such as El Niño research and experimental forecasts.
