United Kingdom Climate Model Outputs for Carbon Dioxide Studies
| DOI: 10.5065/R7BW-CY73
This dataset contains model outputs from climate models that were run by the United Kingdom Met Office in 1986, 1990, and 1992.
The 1986 low-resolution equilibrium runs include a control (1xCO2) run and a 2xCO2 run, both at 48 by 36 global resolution. We received monthly 15-year climatologies of maximum, minimum, and mean surface temperature, surface wind speed, sea-level pressure, precipitation, incoming solar radiation, and boundary layer temperature and humidity from these runs.
The 1990 high-resolution equilibrium runs include a control run and an anomaly (2xCO2) run, both at 96 by 72 global resolution. From these runs, we received numerous parameters as a 10-year daily time series and as monthly, seasonal, and annual 10-year climatologies.
The 1992 75-year transient experiment includes a control run with CO2 set at 323 ppm and a 1% per year compounded CO2 increase run, both at 96 by 72 global resolution. We received 10-year climatologies of soil moisture, precipitation, surface temperature, and surface solar radiation for decades 1, 6, and 8.
