The following tables show which model realizations were used in the GCCV application. All the primary data can be downloaded using the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) data portal.
Models with one entry indicate both the experiment and historical simulation were from the same realization. Entries with the notation x (y) are cases where the experiment and historical simulations were from different realizations. In these special cases, the historical realization is listed second.
Data was extracted for the following periods:
- 1980 – 2004
- 2025 – 2049
- 2050 – 2074
- 2071 – 2095
Models with one entry indicate both the experiment and piControl simulation were from the same realization. Entries with the notation x (y) are cases where the experiment and piControl simulations were from different realizations. In these special cases, the piControl realization is listed second.
Since the length of the PMIP3 simulations vary greatly, the maximum amount of data was used, but ensured the experiment and piControl had the same length. For example if a model had a piControl with 1000 years of data, but the midHolocene experiment was 200 years, the full 200 of the midHolocene data was used, but only the first 200 years of piControl was used.
