The Formulation and Atmospheric Simulation of the Community Atmosphere Model Version 3 ( CAM 3 )

  title={The Formulation and Atmospheric Simulation of the Community Atmosphere Model Version 3 ( CAM 3 )},
  author={William D. Collins and Byron A. Boville and JAMES R. MCCAA and David L. Williamson},
A new version of the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) has been developed and released to the climate community. CAM Version 3 (CAM3) is an atmospheric general circulation model that includes the Community Land Model (CLM3), an optional slab ocean model, and a thermodynamic sea ice model. The dynamics and physics in CAM3 have been changed substantially compared to implementations in previous versions. CAM3 includes options for Eulerian spectral, semi-Lagrangian, and finite-volume formulations of… CONTINUE READING
