The Community Earth System Model Version 2 (CESM2) has a Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity (ECS) of 5.3K. ECS is an emergent property of both climate feedbacks and aerosol forcing. The increase in ECS over the previous version (CESM1) is the result of cloud feedbacks. Interim versions of CESM2 had a land model which damped ECS. Part of the ECS change results from evolving the model configuration to reproduce the long term trend of global and regional surface temperature over the 20th century in re...
CESM version 2.0.1 (the original public-release version of CESM2, and scientifically identical to public version 2.1.0) was run on a nominal 1-degree finite-volume horizontal grid for 30 years to assess the model's ability to represent atmospheric rivers (extreme precipitation events) and their related weather patterns. The dataset is comprised of global, daily averaged CAM history files for selected single-level and multi-level fields. Data size was minimized by extracting from the native files...
This dataset is comprised of WRF output, created to study orographically generated gravity waves observed by satellite-borne radiometers in the stratosphere. The intent is for the OGWs in the output to be used to evaluate satellite-methods for computing vertical fluxes of horizontal momentum, to be compared with waves in ECMWF and UKMO UM models, and to be validated against stratospheric satellite observations. This dataset covers the Patagonia and Antarctic Peninsula regions. The overall object...
Experiments using prescribed SST and ice forcing within CAM6 using the CESM2.
This work aims at quantifying uncertainties in sea level projections using forcing from the Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project for CMIP6 (ISMIP6). The Community Ice Sheet Model (CISM) is used to run ISMIP6-based projections of ocean-forced Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) evolution. In these experiments we investigate parameters such as basal friction laws, grid resolutions, melt scheme, stress balance approximation among others. These runs span 550 years starting from a spin-up starting at year 1...
This dataset contains subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) hindcasts with CESM2 that were carried out as a community project and with community analysis in mind. These forecasts consist of 45-day long runs initialized every Monday from 1999 to 2019, 11 ensemble members. Output includes atmospheric, land, ocean and sea-ice variables (many requested by the community). These simulations are in support of the work done by the newly formed Earth System Predictability Working Group within CESM.
This dataset contains subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) hindcasts with CESM2-WACCM that were done in support of a NOAA project and also NCAR NSC project on Whole Atmosphere subseasonal predictability. These forecasts consist of 45-day long runs initialized every Monday from 1999 to 2019, 11 ensemble members for start dates between Septemeber and March (winter season). Output includes atmospheric, land, ocean and sea-ice variables. The project utilized both NOAA gran and core funding. NOAA did not re...
