CESM Paleoclimate Working Group
In May 1996, NCAR sponsored a workshop in Breckenridge, Colorado, to inform the community on the status of the Climate System Model (CSM) and make plans for the future directions of the model. At this workshop, it was agreed to organize a Paleoclimate Working Group. The role of this working group is: (1) to identify paleoclimate simulations that will require large amounts of Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) computing time and/or are of broad interest to the community, (2) propose improvements to the models needed for paleoclimate applications, and (3) provide feedback to the CSM group based both on analyses of collaborative simulations done under the auspices of the working group and sensitivity simulations performed by individual researchers. Periodic workshops will be scheduled to enhance interactions among the paleoclimate community and the CSM group.

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.
CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
