GISS Climate Model Outputs for Carbon Dioxide Studies

This dataset contains outputs from climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) for use in assessing the impact of increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations on the global climate. A global equilibrium run (1XCO2 and 2XCO2) was made in 1984. A 100-year transient run and two scenario runs (exponential trace gas growth and reduced linear trace gas growth) were made sometime in the mid-1980s. Monthly means and 10-year monthly, seasonal, and annual climatologies are available for numerous parameters, depending on the specific model run, but most parameters are only available at the surface.
