historicalMisc is an experiment of the CMIP5 - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 ( https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5 ). CMIP5 is meant to provide a framework for coordinated climate change experiments for the next five years and thus includes simulations for assessment in the AR5 as well as others that extend beyond the AR5.

List of output variables: https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5/datadescription.html
Output: time series per variable in model grid spatial resolution in netCDF format

Entry name/title of data are specified according to the Data Reference Syntax ( https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/mips/cmip5/docs/cmip5_data_reference_syntax.pdf ) as activity/product/institute/model/experiment/frequency/modeling realm/MIP table/ensemble member/version number/variable name/CMOR filename.nc .
Used forcings in individual ensemble runs (see attached addinfo for more information):
r[1-5]i1p1 - Ant: anthropogenic forcing (AA anthropogenic aerosols - a mixture of aerosols, not explicitly defined here; Oz - tropospheric and stratospheric ozone; GHG - well-mixed greenhouse gases, a mixture, not explicitly defined here);
r[1-5]i1p2 - NoOz: all forcings except tropospheric and stratospheric ozone concentrations fixed;
r[1-5]i1p3 - NoAA: all forcings except anthropogenic aerosols (AA) and the indirect effect of AA on snow albedo;
r[1-5]i1p4 - AA: anthropogenic aerosols (AA) including the indirect effect of AA on snow albedo;
r[1-5]i1p5 - AntNoAA: the same as NoAA (AA is fixed at preindustrial levels), except that AA emissions are allowed to vary in the Asian region [10S to 45N x 65E to 150E];
r[1-5]i1p6 - VI: volcanic forcing only.
