IPCC-DDC-FAR GCM data

The model output data are originally archibed by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). They are now managed by the CISL Research Data Archive and were included into the IPCC Data Distribution Center model archive with the support of the UCAR Data Section.
Only those data sets that were used for the First Assessment Report (AR1) of the IPCC (1990) are included in the DDC data archive.
The metadata may show some gaps due to different archiving strategies adopted by different groups in the early days of the IPCC.
There are some additional data added as data sets (for download, see "Supplementary info") which originate from the archiving system at CISL.

To obtain data you will need a user account (http://cera-www.dkrz.de/WDCC/ui/docs/NoAccount.html). Then choose a centre and a scenario and decide which variables you need and which data format you prefer. Finally, you will be guided to the database interface which will let you retrieve the data files one by one .
