NorESM output from 21st century experiments with stochastic volcanic forcing


This dataset contains post-processed output from a study with the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM) that uses proxy-based stochastic volcanic forcing to assess the effects of volcanic uncertainty on probabilistic 21st century climate projections.

The experiments are described in detail in Bethke, I., S. Outten , O.H. Otterå , S. Wagner, M. Sigl and P. Thorne - Potential volcanic effects on 21st century climate projections (submitted to Nature Climate Change)

The ensemble output from following experiments is made available:
historicalVolc: 1980-2005 simulations using historical volcanic forcing historicalNoVolc (no-Pinatubo): 1990-2004 simulations with zero volc. forcing rcp45Volc (VOLC): 2006-2099 simulations using different stochastic volc. forcings rcp45VolcConst (VOLC-CONST): 2006-2099 simulations using constant volc. forcing rcp45NoVolc (NoVOLC): 2006-2099 simulations with zero volcanic forcing

Volcanic forcing and scripts to generate the forcing are stored in a separate forcing folder.
