Climate Variability & Change
Working Group CVCWG
CAM5 Prescribed SST AMIP Ensembles
The CVCWG has conducted a number of experiments using prescribed SST and ice forcing within CAM5.2 using the CESM1.1 LENS tag. These
experiments are comprised of a total of four 10-member ensembles forced with different observational SST's and ice, and
one simulation with prescribed SST's and ice from the CESM1.1 Large Ensemble coupled control. Details on these
simulations and instructions for how to download the data can be found below.
We kindly ask that you acknowledge the CVCWG when presenting results based on these ensembles in either oral or written form.
Most simulations are available on both the NCAR Climate Data Gateway (web-access) and the NCAR system casper (NCAR-internal). The F1850C5CNTVSST (AMIP with LENS control sst/ice) simulation is only available via casper access.
