CCC2 Model Runs for Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP)
Entry ID: PMIP_CCC2

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The CCC model is the second-generation version of a model first
developed in the early 1980s for climate applications.

The model is identical to the latest AMIP model exept for different
initial conditions and the Earth's orbital parameters.

For the PMIP, CCC2 consists of runs 21, 6 and 0.
