RCP Database (version 2.0):
The RCP database aims at documenting the emissions, concentrations, and land-cover change projections
of the so-called "Representative Concentration Pathways" (RCPs).
Information about the RCPs and the scenario development process
for the IPCC AR5 can be found in the
IPCC Expert Meeting Report on New Scenarios
Moss et al. (2010).
For a draft work plan summarizing the data exchange between the Integrated Assessment and Climate Modeling community see also the "Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) Draft Handshake". The final RCPs have been documented in a Special Issue of Climatic Change that was published in November 2011 (Climatic Change, Volume 109, Issue 1-2). The overview paper (van Vuuren et al, 2011) of the Special Issue summarizes the main achievements. Further description of the RCP can be found below.
Version 2.0 of the database includes harmonized and consolidated data for three of the four RCPs. This comprises emissions pathways starting from identical base year (2000) for BC, OC, CH4, Sulfur, NOx, VOC, CO and NH3. In addition, harmonized well-mixed GHG emissions of the RCPs have been added for the period 2005 to 2100. Radiative forcing and concentrations of GHGs are given for the RCPs up to the year 2100, and are extended for climate modeling experiments to 2300 (ECPs). Wherever available, historical information is provided back to the year 1850. Recent updates include historic and future land-cover information as well as emissions and concentrations data for additional sources: Click here for CMIP5 recommended data.
Initial emissions datasets were made publicly available on May 26, and were extended December 1 to cover harmonized data for all GHGs and concentrations. We ask users to register in order to receive information about further developments and updates of the database (download is thus only possible after registration).
The data provided for the RCPs is extensive - and has undergone several procedures to assure quality and consistency, to harmonize regional base year emissions to recent inventories, and to downscale the projections to 0.5 x 0.5 degree. However, if errors are found or questions remain regarding the data or their use please inform the individual modeling teams and the contact persons provided below.
To prevent misuse of the RCPs, we have provided guidance on the limits and uses of the RCPs below (see "Characteristics and Guidance").

Description of the RCPs
The RCP database aims at documenting the emissions, concentrations, and land-cover change projections of the so-called "Representative Concentration Pathways" (RCPs). The Representative Concentration Pathways are based on selected scenarios from four modeling teams/models (NIES/AIM, IIASA/MESSAGE, PNNL/MiniCAM, and PBL/IMAGE). The RCPs are meant to serve as input for climate and atmospheric chemistry modeling as part of the preparatory phase for the development of new scenarios for the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report and beyond. Further documentation can be found in the IPCC Expert Meeting Report on New Scenarios (Noordwijkerhout report) and the "Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) Draft Handshake".
Characteristics and guidance
The RCPs are not new, fully integrated scenarios (i.e., they are not a complete package of socioeconomic, emissions, and climate projections). They are consistent sets of projections of only the components of radiative forcing that are meant to serve as input for climate modeling, pattern scaling, and atmospheric chemistry modeling. As such, they jump-start the scenario development across research communities from which uncertainties about socioeconomic, climate, and impact futures can be explored. They thus constitute just the beginning of the parallel process of developing new scenarios for the IPCC's fifth Assessment Report. By doing so, the RCPs aim at providing a consistent analytical thread across communities.
The RCPs are named according to their 2100 radiative forcing level as reported by the individual modeling teams. The radiative forcing estimates are based on the forcing of greenhouse gases and other forcing agents - but does not include direct impacts of land use (albedo) or the forcing of mineral dust.
The RCPs are not forecasts or boundaries for potential emissions, land-use, or climate change. They are also not policy prescriptive in that they were chosen for scientific purposes to represent the span of the radiative forcing literature at the time of their selection and thus facilitate the mapping of a broad climate space. They therefore do not represent specific futures with respect to climate policy action (or no action) or technological, economic, or political viability of specific future pathways or climates.
The RCPs are four independent pathways developed by four individual modeling groups. The socioeconomics underlying each RCP are not unique; and, the RCPs are not a set or representative of the range of potential assumptions. For instance, the RCPs with lower radiative forcing (RCP 6.0, RCP 4.5 and RCP 2.6) are not derived from those with higher radiative forcing (RCP 8.5, or even RCP 6.0). The differences between the RCPs can therefore not directly be interpreted as a result of climate policy or particular socioeconomic developments. Any differences can be attributed in part to differences between models and scenario assumptions (scientific, economic, and technological). This is in particular relevant for scenario elements that are only indirectly coupled to the radiative forcing targets such as land use/land cover and air pollutant emissions.
The extension of the scenarios beyond 2100 will be done using simple algorithms intended for use as pathways to drive long-term earth-system simulation experiments and is not the result of integrated assessment analysis or modeling.
Information on individual RCPs
The RCP 2.6 is developed by the IMAGE modeling team of the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. The emission pathway is representative for scenarios in the literature leading to very low greenhouse gas concentration levels. It is a so-called "peak" scenario: its radiative forcing level first reaches a value around 3.1 W/m2 mid-century, returning to 2.6 W/m2 by 2100. In order to reach such radiative forcing levels, greenhouse gas emissions (and indirectly emissions of air pollutants) are reduced substantially over time. The final RCP is based on the publication by Van Vuuren et al. (2007).
The IMAGE-team responsible for developing the RCP 2.6 are:
Detlef P. van Vuuren, Elke Stehfest, Jasper van Vliet, Michel den Elzen, Angelica Mendoza-Beltran, Morna Isaac, Sebastiaan Deetman, Rineke Oostenrijk and Tom Kram.
The RCP 4.5 is developed by the MiniCAM modeling team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI). It is a stabilization scenario where total radiative forcing is stabilized before 2100 by employment of a range of technologies and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The scenario drivers and technology options are detailed in Clarke et al. (2007). Additional detail on the simulation of land use and terrestrial carbon emissions is given by Wise et al (2009).
The MiniCAM-team responsible for developing the RCP 4.5 are:
Allison Thomson, Katherine Calvin, Steve Smith, Page Kyle, April Volke, Pralit Patel, Sabrina Delgado, Ben Bond-Lamberty, Marshall Wise, Leon Clarke and Jae Edmonds
The RCP 6.0 is developed by the AIM modeling team at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), Japan. It is a stabilization scenario where total radiative forcing is stabilized after 2100 without overshoot by employment of a range of technologies and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The details of the scenario are described in Fujino et al. (2006) and Hijioka et al. (2008).
The AIM-team responsible for developing the RCP 6.0 are:
Toshihiko Masui, Yasuaki Hijioka, Sawako Ishiwatari, Tsuguki Kinoshita, Ken'ichi Matsumoto, Toru Nozawa, and Mikiko Kainuma in collaboration with Etsushi Kato at Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC).
The RCP 8.5 is developed by the MESSAGE modeling team and the IIASA Integrated Assessment Framework at the International Institute for Applies Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria. The RCP 8.5 is characterized by increasing greenhouse gas emissions over time representative for scenarios in the literature leading to high greenhouse gas concentration levels. The underlying scenario drivers and resulting development path are based on the A2r scenario detailed in Riahi et al. (2007).
The MESSAGE-team responsible for developing the RCP 8.5 are:
Keywan Riahi, Volker Krey, Shilpa Rao, Vadim Chirkov, Cheolhung Cho, Peter Kolp, Nebojsa Nakicenovic in collaboration with colleagues from other IIASA Programs: Janusz Cofala, Guenther Fischer, Arnulf Gruebler, Georg Kindermann, Zbigniew Klimont, Peter Rafaj, Wolfgang Schoepp
Information on Harmonization of RCP Land-Use Data
The future land-use projections from each RCP were harmonized to ensure a smooth transition from the historical land-use data (from HYDE 3.1: http://www.pbl.nl/hyde ) and to compute the associated secondary (recovering) land area and all land-use transitions. The harmonized data represents fractional land-use patterns and underlying land-use transitions annually for the past (1500-2005) and the RCPs (2005-2100) at 0.5? x 0.5? resolution. This includes transitions between cropland, pasture, primary land and secondary (recovering) land, including the effects of wood harvest and shifting cultivation, as well as land-use changes and transitions from/to urban land. More information is available at: http://luh.unh.edu.
The land-use harmonization team are:
George Hurtt, Louise Parsons Chini, and Steve Frolking.
