* CMIP1 runs are control experiments with seasonal-mean climatological output data. CMIP2 runs are paired control and perturbed (1%-per-year increasing carbon dioxide) experiments with annual-mean climatological output data. In cases that are coded red, essentially the same model version used to produce the CMIP1 control run also produced the paired CMIP2 runs. In other cases, a given model version produced only the CMIP1 (coded black) or only the CMIP2 runs (coded cyan).  In addition, models that are participating in the CMIP2+ initiative (designated by a '+' in column 1) are making available essentially all their history tape data.

For further information on models that are coded black or red, see the CMIP Model Features Documentation (at http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/modeldoc/cmip/) or, for a particular model, the associated "documentation" link in column 2 of the above table (Documentation of the features of the cyan-coded models is in progress.) The IPCC Third Assessment Report (2001) also gives further details on selected features of CMIP models.

** Note that in models with heat flux corrections, the surface temperature is influenced less by the specifications of CO2 concentration and solar constant than is the case for models without such flux corrections. Also, the radiative forcing perturbation is determined primarily by the logarithm of the ratio of transient-to-control CO2 concentrations, rather than by the control concentration per se.
