CSIRO Model Runs for Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project (PMIP)
Entry ID: PMIP_CSIRO

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The CSIRO model is derived from earlier two-level and four-level
spectral models based on the primitive equations expressed in
conservative flux form (cf. Gordon 1981, 1993 ).

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