  • The NIWA-UKCA2 contribution to CCMI-2022 Chemistry-climate model initiative, phase 2. CCMI-2022 is a project to study the evolution of the ozone layer using chemistry-climate model simulations. The NIWA-UKCA2 chemistry-climate model is run by the modelling team at NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) in New Zealand and configured to follow forcings as laid out in the CCMI2022 founding document (Plummer et al., 2021)

  • This dataset contains model data for CCMI-2022 experiment REF-D1 produced by the NIWA-UKCA2 chemistry-climate model run by the modelling team at NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) in New Zealand. The REF-D1 experiment is a hindcast of the atmospheric state, it uses prescribed evolution of sea surface temperature and sea ice. CCMI-2022 Chemistry-climate model initiative, phase 2 is a project to study the evolution of the ozone layer using chemistry-climate model simulations. ------------------------------------------ Sources of additional information ------------------------------------------ The following web links are provided in the Details/Docs section of this catalogue record: - Review of the global models used within phase 1 of the Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative (CCMI) - A new set of Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative (CCMI) Community Simulations to Update the Assessment of Models and Support Upcoming Ozone Assessment Activities, David Plummer and Tatsuya Nagashima and Simone Tilmes and Alex Archibald and Gabriel Chiodo and Suvarna Fadnavis and Hella Garny and Beatrice Josse and Joowan Kim and Jean-Francois Lamarque and Olaf Morgenstern and Lee Murray and Clara Orbe and Amos Tai and Martyn Chipperfield and Bernd Funke and Martin Juckes and Doug Kinnison and Markus Kunze and Beiping Luo and Katja Matthes and Paul A.

  • Data from the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research - United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosol (NIWA-UKCA) model, part of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC)/ Stratosphere-troposphere Processes and their Role in Climate (SPARC) Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative phase 1 (CCMI-1). CCMI-1 is a global chemistry climate model intercomparison project, coordinated by the University of Reading on behalf of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). The dataset includes data for the following CCMI-1 experiments: Reference experiments: ref-C1 and ref-C2. Sensitivity experiments: senC1fEmis, senC2fCH4, senC2fGHG, senC2fN2O and senC2fODS. ref-C1: Using state-of-knowledge historic forcings and observed sea surface conditions, the models simulate the recent past (1960–2010). ref-C2: Simulations spanning the period 1960–2100. The experiments follow the WMO (2011) A1 baseline scenario for ozone depleting substances and the RCP 6.0 (Meinshausen et al., 2011) for other greenhouse gases, tropospheric ozone (O3) precursors, and aerosol and aerosol precursor emissions. senC1fEmis: Surface emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx ), carbon monoxide (CO), non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs), and aerosol precursors are prescribed at 1960 levels throughout, allowing the influence of meteorological variability on tropospheric composition to be established. senC2fGHG: Similar to ref-C2 but with greenhouse gasses (GHGs) fixed at their 1960 levels, and sea surface and sea ice conditions prescribed as the 1955–1964 average (where these conditions are imposed). senC2fCH4: Similar to ref-C2 but the methane surface-mixing ratio is fixed to its 1960 value. senC2fN2O: Similar to ref-C2 but the nitrous oxide surface-mixing ratio is fixed to its 1960 value. senC2fODS: Similar to ref-C2 but with ozone-depleting (halogenated) substances (ODSs) fixed at their 1960 levels.
