This dataset contains outputs from climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) for use in assessing the impact of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations on the global climate. A global equilibrium run (1XCO2 and 2XCO2) was made in 1984. A 100-year transient run and two scenario runs (exponential trace gas growth and reduced linear trace gas growth) were made sometime in the mid-1980s. Monthly means and 10-year monthly, seasonal, and annual climatologies are available for numerous parameters, depending on the specific model run, but most parameters are only available at the surface.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
