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.
