Naming Conventions

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.

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.

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:

External Python Based Tools

Support for these tools is currently limited to NCAR machines only!. Access to these external python based tools are being provided to the community via NCAR Github repositories.

There are a number of dependencies that must be installed at the system level in order to run these tools. Please see the github documentation for more details.
