The basic principle is that we should strive to include all relevant transient forcings over this period if the functionality exists in the model, noting that conformability with the CMIP5 controls and 20th Century transient is crucial.
|Orbital parameters||Annually varying (850-1850)||1850 values or same Pre-Ind CMIP5 control|
|Table provided if not internally calculated||[ ecc = ] - [ obl = ° ] - [ peri-180° = ° ]|
|Date of vernal equinox||Mar 21 hr 0||same as CMIP5 control|
|Trace gases||Annually varying (850-1850)||constant at CMIP5 control levels|
|Table provided||[ CO2 = ppm ] - [ CH4 = ppb ] - [ N2O = ppb ] - [ CFC = ] - [ O3 = ]|
|Volcanic Aerosols||Multiple reconstructions (of AOD, Effective Radius, Mass)|
|Solar irradiance||Multiple reconstructions (default TBD)|
|Ozone||solar related variations????||same as pre-Ind control|
|Aerosols||biomass burning changes????||same as pre-Ind control|
|Vegetation||Land use conversion (forests to C3/C4 crops) (Pongratz, 2008, Foley and Ramunkutty)||No change from Pre-Ind control|
|available from WDCC-Hamburg (URL?)|
|Ice sheets||No changes from Pre-Ind control|
|Topography and coastlines||No change from Pre-Ind control|
