CESM2 Development Final Stages

 

Summary

Below are recent simulations from CESM development (cycle 125). This is not the final configuration for CESM2 but does represent a near-final configuration.

These diagnostics are intented to give working group members a sense of the model performance compared to the previous release CESM1 in preparation for the upcoming working meetings (27 February - 3 March, 2017, NCAR, Boulder, CO)

Please provide any feedback you may have to the relevant working group co-chairs
