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.

Output: time series per variable in model grid spatial resolution in netCDF format

Used forcings in individual ensemble runs (see attached addinfo for more information):
r1i1p2 - Ant: anthropogenic forcing (a mixture, not explicitly defined here, that might include, for example, well-mixed greenhouse gases, aerosols, ozone, and land-use changes);
r1i1p3 - NoLU: no land-use change;
r1i1p4 - NoLU: no land-use change;
r1i1p5 - AA: anthropogenic aerosols (a mixture of aerosols, not explicitly defined here);
r1i1p6 - LU: land-use change;
r1i1p7 - SI: solar irradiance;
r1i1p8 - VI: volcanic aerosol.
