Comments

  • ‘Experiment Name’: The CMIP5 experiment name (DRS) and the acronyms used within the CERA database are given.

  • ‘output1/output2’: CMIP5 data was collected in two products. output1 data was viewed as more important and replicated among the CMIP5 Archive centers at PCMDI, BADC and DKRZ. output2 data can be viewed as an extention of the output1 data, which was archived at DKRZ only for MPI-M data.

  • ‘period’ is the time in calendar years for experiments historical, rcp*, lgm, midHolocene, and past1000. In the experiments piControl, 1pctCO2, abrupt4xCO2, sstClim* there is no reference to the calendar.
