Additional Spatial Aggregation & Resolution Information: ORCHIDEE will be run at the resolution of 1°*1°, while we will provide interpolated 0.5°*0.5° output
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Climate Variables: daily
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Co2: annual
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Land Use/Land Cover: annual
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Soil: constant
Input data sets used
Observed Atmospheric Climate Data Sets Used: EWEMBI
Emissions Data Sets Used: CO2 concentration
Land Use Data Sets Used: Historical, gridded land use (HYDE 3.2)
Climate Variables: tasmax, tasmin, rlds, rhs, rsds, ps, pr
Was A Spin-Up Performed?: Yes
Spin-Up Design: We use the 1801-1820 climate condition, pre-industry CO2 (287.14 ppm), land cover map of 1860 to do the spin-up until the soil carbon to be equilibrium. Then a simulation of 1801-1860 pre-industrial period will be run. All other runs since 1861 will follow the protocol, and will be started from previous 1801-1860 run.
