CESM2.0 Series Release Notes

Scientific Validation

Scientific validation consists of a multi-decadal model run of the given component set at the target resolution, followed by scientific review of the model output diagnostics. All scientifically supported component sets are also accompanied by diagnostic and model output data.

What version of the model should I use?

For a scientifically supported target component set and resolution, please refer to the Scientifically Validated Configurations for that target configuration.

Model Input Data

The input data necessary to run all supported component sets is made available from a public Subversion input data repository.

The CESM2.0 User's Guide explains how to obtain the subset of input data required for your needs.

Performance and Load Balancing Data

The development and testing of CESM2.0 required several iterations in the CESM1.Y series. The following timing tables for each model revision are available:
