cmip3_2100: Climate Change signals for CMIP3 ensemble

Description Details Source References Examples

Description

This dataset contains air temperature and precipitation climate change signals of all climate simulations from the CMIP3 project from 1961-1990 to 2071-2100. Subregions are defined according to the CORDEX project. Subregion EU.ENS contains the European region defined in the ENSEMBLES project and World contains the entire earth. http://wcrp.ipsl.jussieu.fr/SF_RCD_CORDEX.html.
