About CESM2

TO DO Brief Description of CESM2

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.

Quick Start Documentation

CIME - Documentation

Common Infrastructure for Modeling the Earth (CIME) contains the support scripts (configure, build, run, test), data models, essential utility libraries, a “main” and other tools that are needed to build a single-executable coupled Earth System Model. CIME is available in a stand-alone package that can be compiled and tested without active prognostic components but is typically included in the source of a climate model. CIME does not contain: any active components, any intra-component coupling capability (such as atmosphere physics-dynamics coupling).

Active or Prognostic Components

Each model component page contains descriptions and documentation for active or prognostic models.

Model Input Data

The input data necessary to run all supported component sets is made available from a public Subversion input data repository. Note that the inputdata repository has much more data in it than you need to run CESM ---- DO NOT attempt to svn checkout the whole input data repository. The CIME User's Guide explains how to obtain the subset of input data required for your needs.
