German Climate Model Outputs for Carbon Dioxide Studies

| DOI: 10.5065/9FC4-4468

This dataset contains outputs from two runs of a coupled atmosphere-ocean model at DKRZ in Hamburg. The runs were made in 1990 and they include a control run and an IPCC Scenario A run. We received 100 years of monthly 10-year climatologies of 2m temperature, precipitation, net surface solar radiation, and reflected surface solar radiation in GRIB0 format.

We also received outputs from 100-year transient runs (control, IPCC Scenario A, and IPCC Scenario D). These included monthly means of 59 parameters at the surface and 15 isobaric levels. We were notified in May 1993 that there was a problem with the vertical interpolation in those runs, so the data are no longer in our public distribution, but they remain in our archive.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the 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.
