AgMIP Climate Scenario Naming Convention

These are the naming conventions that have been developed for daily weather data files for AgMIP climate scenarios. For the ACMO data, the first 4 characters of this naming convention can be ignored, as the institution and location are provided in other fields. The fifth through eighth characters can be used to identify a climate scenario used in any given crop model simulation.

First 4 Digits describe location (e.g. OBRE, FL11)

Fifth Digit is time period and emissions scenario:

Sixth Digit is source of baseline data (if baseline scenario):

Sixth Digit is GCM (if CMIP3 scenario):

Sixth Digit is GCM (if CMIP5 scenario):

Seventh Digit is downscaling/scenario methodology:

Eighth Digit is Type of Scenario:
