This document presents recommendations for sampling physical ocean fields for the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project #5 (CMIP5) numerical experiments. These experiments are of particular interest for the 5th IPCC assessment (IPCC-AR5). We include guidelines for space and time sampling, and rationalizations for a list of fields to be archived. The perspective taken here is that of physical ocean scientists aiming to enhance the scientific utility of model… CONTINUE READING
