CMIP6 AMIP configuration

Reported by: Martin Dix Owned by:
Priority: major Component: ACCESS-CM2
Keywords: Cc:


Required experiment configuration (from Rogers notes)

1979–2014 with monthly mean SST and sea-ice

Forcing methods: All (same as CMIP historical); CO2 concentrations prescribed

  • Solar variability
  • Volcanic aerosols
  • CO2 concentrations – time varying global annual mean. Similarly for other LLGHGs.
  • Aerosols
  • Land use

The GA7.1 AMIP experiment u-aj458-gregorian was using the Met Office evaluation configuration. This uses

  • daily SST rather than monthly
  • time varying GHGs,
  • climatological ozone
  • no solar variability
  • NH3 and SO2 emissions vary monthly and year to year (though CMIP5 based and interannual variation is interpolated from decadal data). Other emissions climatological.
  • No volcanic forcing
