Description:

Globally averaged co2 and ch4 annual data, covering the periods 1850-1900 (transclim), 1850-2021 (obsclim, spinclim), and 1901-2021 (counterclim).

Scenarios: counterclim, obsclim, spinclim, transclim
Variables: co2
Specifications

The co2 data for 1850-2005 is taken from Meinshausen et al. (2011), and for 2006-2019 from Dlugokencky & Tans (NOAA/GML).
The ch4 data for 1850-2014 is taken from Meinshausen et al. (2017), and for 2015-2019 from Ed Dlugokencky (NOAA/GML).
