PMIP4 Groups and Experiments

PMIP4 experiments summary

CMIP6 entry card

Reminder: the DECK experiments (Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Characterization of Klima Experiments) are the entry card for CMIP, and the DECK and historical experiments are the entry card for CMIP6. The list below is only meant as shortcut to help PMIP4 users locate basic CMIP6 information

Short name Standard name Design
0k piControl (DECK) Pre-industrial control, see GMD reference below this table
amip (DECK) Historical AMIP, see GMD reference below this table
abrupt4xCO2 (DECK) Quadruple CO2 abruptly, then hold fixed, see GMD reference below this table
1pctCO2 (DECK) 1% per year CO2 increase, see GMD reference below this table
historical Past ~1.5 centuries, see GMD reference below this table
