‡ Note that HIRHAM5_EC-EARTH runs use ensemble member r3i1p1, while RCA4_EC-EARTH runs use ensemble member r12i1p1. All other simulations use ensemble member r1i1p1 of their respective GCM runs.

Data access notes: PoC = Point of Contact (Modeler); ESGF = Earth System Grid Federation; CCCma = CCCma website

Contact information, time periods, and other details are available on the simulations by modeling group page.

Simulations organized to highlight possible intercomparison subexperiments
