***Simulation spin-up and experiment names***

All simulations run for 550 years following PMIP3 protocol.

The first 500 years are run in spin-up mode with minimal output.
They are initiated from a preindustrial (PI) simulation which has
been run for >1000 years.

500 year experiment names with spin-up output:

0ka     =   tczjb
6ka     =   tczjc
125ka   =   tczjd
128ka   =   tczje
130ka   =   tczjk

Simulations are continued for a further 50 years with full output
and are continued from their respective spin-up simulation:

50 year experiment names with full output:

0ka     =   tczjl
6ka     =   tczjm
125ka   =   tczjn
128ka   =   tczjo
130ka   =   tczjp
