IPCC-DDC_CSIRO_SRES_B2: 140 YEARS MONTHLY MEANS Commenwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Australia


The SRES data sets were published by the IPCC in 2000 and classified into four different scenario families (A1, A2, B1, B2). SRES_B2 storyline describes a world in which the emphasis is on local solutions to economic, social and enviromental sustainability. The global population is increasing at a lower rate than A2. It has an intermediate level of economic development and a less rapid and more diverse technological change than in A1 and B1. The Mark 2 CSIRO coupled global climate model consists of the atmospheric component which has 9 vertical levels with an R21 horizontal resolution and the ocean component which was based on the GFDL code. M2CSIRO (http://www.cmar.csiro.au/e-print/open/hennessy_1998a.html#ccm ) The changes of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O and sulphur dioxide are prescribed according to the above mentioned scenario.
