The MPI-Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is now available from ESGF

The MPI-Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is now available from ESGF

Feb 07, 2019: The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) Grand Ensemble (MPI-GE) is the largest ensemble of a single state-of-the-art comprehensive climate model (MPI-ESM 1.1) currently available. The MPI-GE consists of five ensembles of 100 simulations each under different forcing scenarios, where the forcing scenarios correspond to those used in CMIP5. MPI-GE allows to address scientific questions that could not be answered in the past, such as: Does internal variability of the climate system change under different forcing conditions? Furthermore, novel approaches of comparing the model’s internal variability with estimated observed variability can be applied.
