3. Compare the monthly mean output files to those from the 1° Normal Year Forcing Control which are available on the Earth System Grid (ESG).
4. Run the ocean model diagnostics as outlined in the POP2 Post Processing Utilities section and compare to the plots provided on the POP2 "Stand Alone" Diagnostics page for the 1° Normal Year Forcing Control simulation. Note that the map plots are the mean of year 10 only and the time series plots include years 1 to 10.
We currently have the following verification simulations:
c40.t62x1.verif.01 using the ccsm4.0_rel05 tag (March 2010)
c40.t62x1.verif.03 using the cesm1.0_rel02 tag (November 2010)
