We acknowledge the modelling groups, the Programme for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison (PCMDI) and the WCRP's Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) for their roles in making available the WCRP CMIP3 multi-model dataset. Support of this dataset is provided by the Office of Science, US Department of Energy. Spatial patterns of the PanClim dataset were derived from 19 Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models from the WCRP CMIP3 multi-model dataset.
Climatic Research Unit time-series datasets of variations in climate with variations in other phenomena (CRU TS 3.1) were used in the creation of the PanClim dataset. CRU TS data are unrestricted and are available for download to all BADC users.
Globally gridded monthly precipitation products from the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) (Full Data Reanalysis Version 5) were used in the creation of the PanClim dataset. The GPCC provides free access to its monthly gridded precipitation data sets for climate monitoring purposes and related research.
