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 1.2
attribute NC_GLOBAL comment String GFDL experiment name = CM2.1U-H1_SresA1B_X3. PCMDI experiment name = SRESA1B (run3). Initial conditions for this experiment were taken from 1 January 2001 of the climate of the 20th century experiment named CM2.1U-D4_1860-2000-AllForc_H1. Several time varying forcing agents used during the first 100 years of this CM2.1U-H1_SresA1B_X3 experiment were based on output of the MOZART global atmospheric chemistry climate model when driven with the SRES A1B emission scenarios. For the CM2.1U-H1_SresA1B_X3 experiment volcanic aerosols were zero, land surface cover types were time invariant, and solar irradiance was held constant at a level based upon late 20th century averages.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This is monthly ocean model data, 2001-2100, run #3, from the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory's (GFDL) CM2.1 climate model, specifically: GFDL CM2.1, SresA1B (run3) 720 ppm stabilization experiment (SRES A1B) 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.
