Forcing Databases in Support of CMIP6

This page provides CMIP6 modellers with information and links to the IGAC/SPARC CCMI ozone database and nitrogen-deposition fields from pre-industrial time to the future (1850-2100). These databases are being produced specifically in support of CMIP6 using CCMI models with comprehensive stratosphere-troposphere chemistry and represent the official products the CMIP panel recommends to use for CMIP6 models that lack interactive chemistry.

Different parts of the databases will be accessible via this site adhering to the CMIP6 timeline with deadlines indicated below. The different databases will get citable doi-numbers assigned, which users are asked to refer to in potential publications. The description and validation information of the databases will be published in the GMD online journal by the end of 2016 at the latest.

Before you download data, please register as user by sending an email to Michaela Hegglin. This is to ensure that we can contact you with new information and updates on the databases when they become available.
