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 global
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 contribute
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 transition
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 and
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 with
The contribution of cloud and radiation anomalies to the 2007 Arctic sea ice extent minimum
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 from
The Community Earth System Model Version 2 (CESM2)
An overview of the Community Earth System Model Version 2 (CESM2) is provided, including a discussion of the challenges encountered during its development and how they were addressed. In addition, an
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 Community
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 Project
