The Community Earth System Model: A Framework for Collaborative Research
The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a flexible and extensible community tool used to investigate a diverse set of Earth system interactions across multiple time and space scales. This globalExpand
The Community Earth System Model (CESM) large ensemble project: a community resource for studying climate change in the presence of internal climate variability
AbstractWhile internal climate variability is known to affect climate projections, its influence is often underappreciated and confused with model error. Why? In general, modeling centers contributeExpand
The Arctic’s rapidly shrinking sea ice cover: a research synthesis
The sequence of extreme September sea ice extent minima over the past decade suggests acceleration in the response of the Arctic sea ice cover to external forcing, hastening the ongoing transitionExpand
CloudSat mission: Performance and early science after the first year of operation
[1] This paper reports on the early mission performance of the radar and other major aspects of the CloudSat mission. The Cloudsat cloud profiling radar (CPR) has been operating since 2 June 2006 andExpand
Cloud influence on and response to seasonal Arctic sea ice loss
[1] Recent declines in Arctic sea ice extent provide new opportunities to assess cloud influence on and response to seasonal sea ice loss. This study combines unique satellite observations withExpand
Climate Change Projections in CESM1(CAM5) Compared to CCSM4
AbstractFuture climate change projections for phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) are presented for the Community Earth System Model version 1 that includes the CommunityExpand
The contribution of cloud and radiation anomalies to the 2007 Arctic sea ice extent minimum
[1] Reduced cloudiness and enhanced downwelling radiation are associated with the unprecedented 2007 Arctic sea ice loss. Over the Western Arctic Ocean, total summertime cloud cover estimated fromExpand
Accuracy and uncertainty of thermal-infrared remote sensing of stream temperatures at multiple spatial scales
Stream temperature is an important indicator of water quality, particularly in regions where endangered fish populations are sensitive to elevated water temperature. Regional assessment of streamExpand
Sensitivity to glacial forcing in the CCSM4
AbstractResults are presented from the Community Climate System Model, version 4 (CCSM4), simulation of the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) from phase 5 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison ProjectExpand
Exposing Global Cloud Biases in the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) Using Satellite Observations and Their Corresponding Instrument Simulators
AbstractSatellite observations and their corresponding instrument simulators are used to document global cloud biases in the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) versions 4 and 5. The model–observationExpand
