How to Acknowledge NSF Support in CESM Publications

When you use CESM2 simulations in your publications, it is very important to acknowledge our primary sponsor, the National Science Foundation (NSF). Appropriate acknowledgment of the NSF sponsorship is:

"The CESM project is supported primarily by the National Science Foundation."

The NCAR authors must additionally use the following sentence in their publications:

“This material is based upon work supported by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, which is a major facility sponsored by the National Science Foundation under Cooperative Agreement No. 1852977.”

Regarding computing, for CESM simulations performed at NCAR or for papers analyzing CMIP6 simulations performed at NCAR, please use the following:

“Computing and data storage resources, including the Cheyenne supercomputer (doi:10.5065/D6RX99HX), were provided by the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) at NCAR. NCAR is sponsored by the National Science Foundation."

Full acknowledgment example for a manuscript using CESM2 simulations with an NCAR co-author:

“The CESM project is supported primarily by the National Science Foundation (NSF). This material is based upon work supported by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, which is a major facility sponsored by the NSF under Cooperative Agreement No. 1852977. Computing and data storage resources, including the Cheyenne supercomputer (doi:10.5065/D6RX99HX), were provided by the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) at NCAR.”
