CM2.x atmosphere land monthly variable list by table

[NOAA bullet] Table A2a: Daily-mean 2-d atmosphere data (longitude, latitude, time:day)

To learn about the directory structure used in storing CM2.0 data on this server, see the FAQ How are the CM2.0 model output files arranged in directories on the GFDL Data Portal?
The variables and output variable names listed in this table are consistent with those of the IPCC/PCMDI archive as outlined in their document titled IPCC Standard Output from Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere GCMs.

[NOAA bullet] Table A2b: Daily-mean 3-d atmosphere data (longitude, latitude, pressure, time:day)

This data should be provided for just one ensemble member per scenario, and,  and for the years specified in the table at the end of this document. Also this data must be provided on pressure levels, including at least the following subset of standard levels:1000, 925, 850, 700, 600, 500, 400, 300, 200 hPa.
