NASA Cloud Object Proposal
This site is to support the proposal Process-Based and Object-Based Investigation of Bias in Simulations of the Physical Climate.
Some Basic Model Information
We will start this work with some runs done by Bala when he was at Livermore. The primary focus will be the AMIP runs.
Resolution latitude x longitude b=2x2.5, c=1x1.25, d=0.5x0.625 (approximately)
2 CCSM simulations with the ice problem fixed:
Tviscalb - 400 years 1990 control T1870_06 - 600 years of pre-industrial control
CAM3_347 AMIP runs at three different resolutions: amip_bb_3347_247ic91 amip_cc_3347_487ic91 amip_dd_3347_967ic91
Here are diagnostics from the standard NCAR diagnostics package.
