The full model size must be set in the domain_size module (in the file domain_size.F90 located in the run directory). The horizontal extents of the grid nx_global and ny_global are defined here as well as the number of vertical levels km. The number of tracers nt also must be defined here and must be at least two to handle potential temperature and salinity which are always assumed to be tracer number one and two, respectively.

CESM1 Notes

In CESM1 applications, the full model size is automatically defined in your CESM1 $CASE, based upon the grid-code specified in your create_newcase command.
