There are two versions of global coupled climate models developed at the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR) participating in phase 5 of the Coupled Model Inter-comparison Project (CMIP5), namely ACCESS1.0 and AC-CESS1.3. This paper describes the CMIP5 experimental configuration of the ACCESS models and the climate forcings for the(More)
The Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator coupled model (ACCESS-CM) has been developed at the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR), a partnership between CSIRO 1 and the Bureau of Meteorology. It is built by coupling the UK Met Office atmospheric unified model (UM), and other sub-models as required, to the ACCESS(More)
This study evaluates simulations of the East Asian winter monsoon in eight GCMs that participated in the Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project (AMIP). In addition to validating the mean state of the winter monsoon, the cold surge and its transient properties, which includes the frequency, intensity, preferred propagation tracks, and the evolution(More)
We evaluate the performance of two versions of the ACCESS model (1.0 and 1.3) in simulating both the historical (1979−2008) and projected (2071−2100) atmospheric circulations during, principally, the austral winter under two CMIP5 emission scenarios (RCP4.5 and RCP8.5). The model biases are estimated relative to two recent reanalysis datasets, while the(More)

The Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS) has been developed at the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research. It is a coupled modeling system consisting of ocean, atmosphere and land surface. The ACCESS atmospheric component is the UK Met Office Unified Model (UM). The initial results from the ACCESS coupled model had(More)

The impacts of climate change on the environment and society will depend not only on the response of the Earth system but also on how humankind responds through changes in technology, economy, lifestyle and policy. These responses are uncertain, so future scenarios are used to explore the consequences of different options. The scenarios provide a range of(More)
