Simulations: Set 1

ID Case Description Diagnostics Details/Comments
f2000_unicon
CAM standalone with climatological SSTs

w/ cam5.3 (5-year run)
 
f2000_pia_unicon
CAM standalone with climatological SSTs
+ preindustrial aerosol
w/ f2000_unicon  
famip_unicon

AMIP run
+ COSP simulator

w/ obs (yrs 1980-2004)
w/ cam5.3 (yrs 1980-2004)

w/ obs (yrs 1995-2004)
w/ cam5.3 + cosp

AMWG variability
CVPD package

NB: The cam5.3
didn't include COSP simulator.
At the panel's request,
we ran a 10-year simulation
with COSP turned on.

UNICON uses a kludge to run COSP. The variables CVCLIQ_COSP, CVCICE_COSP, RAIN_CV_COSP, SNOW_CV_COSP should be discarded.

Description of the code base and difference with CAM trunk


The UNICON simulations used code branched from cam5_3_23.
The description of the code is available on the UNICON tag description.
