Abstract (Brief description of the experiment contents (initial conditions, boundary conditions, etc.))
This is the dataset simulated by MIROC5-AGCM. Two experiments were conducted with and without a scheme implicitly representing a snow-fed wetland, in which snowmelt can be stored with consideration of subgrid terrain complexity. The spatial resolution is T42, which corresponds to a gridcell size of about 310 km at the equator, and the model has 40 levels in the vertical. We used climatological monthly sea surface temperature (SST) and sea ice distributions from 1979 to 1996 as boundary conditions. We conducted a 30-yr simulation with zero surface storage as an initial condition.
