Dataset: CSIRO Dawn to 2100 SRESA1B tmaxmin - GCM Air temperature near surface max and min datasets and trends 1850 to 2100 using the SRESA1B Scenario


The CSIRO Dawn-2100 archive contains datasets for atmospheric, land and oceanographic variables for the approximate period 1850 - 2100 (dependent on model). These have been created through the concatenation of 20th century (20C3M) and other scenario (currently SRESA1B or SRESA2) data from a number of the 25 differant global climate models (GCM) from various countries. The SRESA1B_tmaxmin dataset contains the Air temperature near surface max and min variables for various GCM's and runs (multiple runs being averaged to a single file if existing) under the SRESA1B scenario (SRESA1B emissions 2001 to 2100, then constant GHG 720ppm). These variables have also been further analysed to give monthly, seasonal and annual trend data, calculated from a monthly timeseries referenced to the area-weighted mean global warming values. 8 GCM models are available with data for variables being in 12 month, annual and 4 seasons(DJF, MAM,JJA,SON) format with 26 files totaling 3.70 GB as Netcdf files. Available for internal use and analysis by CSIRO staff on the HPSC cherax.
