As part of this national strategy, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) had launched a 5-year (FY2007 - 2011) initiative called the Innovative Program of Climate Change Projection for the 21st Century (KAKUSHIN Program), using the Earth Simulator (ES) to address emerging research challenges, such as those derived from the outcomes of the MEXT's Kyosei Project (FY2002 - 2006), that had made substantial contributions to the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The KAKUSHIN Program was expected to further contribute to the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).
The research items include the advancement and forecasting of global warming models, the quantification and reduction of model uncertainty, and the evaluation of the impacts of natural disasters based on forecast information.
Much of the data submitted to CMIP5 from Japan were generated under this KAKUSHIN program using the global climate models and the Earth system models developed in Japan.
This dataset is the result of using the Earth System Model MIROC-ESM.
All CMIP5 data are collected, managed, and published by the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF), and DIAS serves as an ESGF node. All public datasets, including this dataset, are available from ESGF. For information on how to use these datasets, including this dataset, see "CMIP5 Data - Getting Started" (URL is available in the online information below). Please note that an ESGF account is required to download the CMIP5 data.
Currently, all CMIP5 data, including this dataset, is classified as "unrestricted" within it.
