OFES CFC 0.5deg

Reduced resolution (0.5 degree) OFES output, interannual forcing for 50+ years.

The OGCM For the Earth Simulator (OFES) is a global 0.1x0.1 degree model forced by NCEP winds, but the output was sub-sampled at 0.5-degree resolution (note, every fifth point was taken, not a mean over five points). This output is from a 50+ year integration using interannually varying winds, with CFC-11 introduced as a passive tracer.
