Fully-coupled WACCM simulations with two different aerosol forcing files. The aerosol forcing files include background aerosols, but differ in that only one aerosol forcing file also includes explosive volcanic eruptions added to the background aerosols. Each ensemble contains 11 members with slightly varying initial conditions.
These simulation data are taken from aquaplanet and "real-Earth" configurations of the NCAR Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) and Community Earth System Model version 1.2.2 (hereafter, “CESM1”). The Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) is the atmospheric component of the climate model. Each file contains only a single data field (plus supporting data) for a single simulation. Only two primary data fields are provided in this collection: daily averaged total precipitation (PRECT) and t...
Output are from the CESM2(WACCM-X).The model’s dynamical fields (temperature, zonal and meridional winds and surface pressure) are specified in the troposphere and stratosphere from the Modern Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA) [Rienecker et al., 2011]. The model has a horizontal resolution of 1.9˚ latitude by 2.5˚ longitude. This simulation followed the “REFC1D” protocol of the Chemistry Climate Model Initiative [Eyring et al., 2013] for the specification of time-d...
Radiative kernels and forcing calculated with CESM1.1 (CAM5), large-ensemble version, for both the top-of-atmosphere and the surface. A demo usage script is also included.
The SO2 injection matrix simulations were performed to perform a system identification of the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM), to identify the aerosol optical depth and climate response of stratospheric SO2 injections for different locations and amount. The WACCM model is a fully interactive Earth System Model, that includes interactive chemistry, radiations, dynamics and a whole atmosphere modal aerosol microphysical scheme, and is coupled to land, sea-ice and ocean (Mills et a...
The first simulations of stratospheric sulfate aerosol geoengineering using multiple injection locations to meet multiple simultaneous surface temperature objectives. Simulations were performed using CESM1(WACCM), a coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model with fully interactive stratospheric chemistry, dynamics (including an internally generated quasi-biennial oscillation), and a sophisticated treatment of sulfate aerosol formation, microphysical growth, and deposition. The objective...
The CESM1-CAM5 fixed ozone runs are eight CESM simulations that use the Large Ensemble (LENS) code base and were initialized in 1955 with Large Ensemble members. The runs use the same external forcings as those in the 20th Century CESM LENS except for ozone. Instead of prescribing a time-varying ozone concentration as in LENS, ozone is kept at constant 1955 concentrations (the ozone file is pub...
Three sets of experiments as part of the Chemistry Climate Model Initiative project: REFC2 , G4SSA and G4SSA-S using the full tropospheric and stratospheric chemistry version of the Community Earth System Model – Community Atmospheric Model 4 (CESM CAM4-chem) with horizontal resolution of 0.9° x 1.25° lat-lon and 26 levels from the surface to about 40 km (3.5 hPa). Each set of experiment has three ensemble members. RCP6.0 is the reference run from 2004 to 2089, and G4SSA and G4SSA-S are two sol...

Among other forcings, past climate variations have been driven by changes in Earth’s orbit and greenhouse gas concentrations. These forcings often change concurrently, making it difficult to isolate specific climate responses from the paleoclimate record alone. Here, simulations are run with the NCAR CESM1.2 to isolate the climate responses to different past forcings. In each simulation, only one boundary condition is changed while others remain fixed at preindustrial levels, with the goal of...
Output are from the CESM2(WACCM-X 2.0). These are results from a free running historical simulation. The model has a horizontal resolution of 1.9˚ latitude by 2.5˚ longitude. This simulation followed the “REFC1D” protocol of the Chemistry Climate Model Initiative [Eyring et al., 2013] for the specification of time-dependent greenhouse gases and ozone depleting substances. Data are provided for evaluation/validation purposes. Please contact marsh@ucar.edu for terms of use. Eyring et al. (2013)...
The data provided here were used for analysis in the Geophysical Research Letters publication “Cover crops may cause winter warming in snow-covered regions” by Danica Lombardozzi et al. All data are from uncoupled CLM or CLM-CAM simulations, and were run in one of four cover crop configurations that modified the cropland area during the fallow season over North America in the land surface data set used within each simulation: 1) no cover crop, where crop area has no leaf area during the fallow s...

The data provided here were used for analysis in the JGR-Biogeosciences publication “Changes in wood biomass and crop yields in response to projected CO2, O3, nitrogen deposition, and climate” by Danica Lombardozzi et al. All data are from uncoupled CLM simulations that used an anomaly forcing technique to apply RCP8.5 future forcings. Six simulations were run with either individual or a combination of future forcings.

These data are from a series of simulations documenting model developments that have been included in Community Land Model version 5 (CLM5) which is the default land component for the Community Earth System Model version 2 (CESM2). These data were generated to compare CLM5 to prior versions of CLM (CLM4 and CLM4.5) in land-only mode forced with several historical forcing datasets including GSWP3v1, CRUNCEPv7, and WATCH. Data include simulations with LAI prescribed from satellite phenology (SP)...
Data included here include model input data (used to run the biogeochemical testbed), and annually averaged model output (analyzed in Wieder et al. 2018a, b). Input data are daily forcing, ‘met.nc’, files that were generated by the satellite phenology scheme of the Community Land Model (CLM, version 4.5sp; Oleson et al. 2013). Data for the historical period (1901-2010) were generated with atmospheric condition from the CRU-NCEP climate reanalysis data. Data for future scenarios (2011-2100) ...

Derived quantities required for algorithms, such as IVT or IWV, were computed by the ARTMIP project so that all methods use the exact same data. Derived variables can be ...

This data includes select model output from a global, eddy-resolving, numerical simulation integrated with the ocean [Smith et al. 2010], sea-ice [Hunke and Lipscomb 2008] and marine biogeochemistry [Moore et al. 2013] components of the the Community Earth System Model (CESM1) [Hurrell et al. 2013], forced with atmospheric data from the Coordinated Ocean-ice Reference Experiment (CORE I) "normal year" [Large and Yeager 2004].

Two high-resolution versions of a coupled Earth system model (CESM1.3: 0.25˚-atmosphere, 1˚-ocean; CESM1.1: 0.25˚-atmosphere, 0.1˚-ocean) are compared to the standard resolution CESM1.1 and CESM1.3 (1˚-atmosphere, 1˚-ocean). The CESM1.3 versions are documented, and the consequences of model resolution, air-sea coupling, and physics in the atmospheric models are studied with regards to storm tracks in the Southern Hemisphere as represented by 850 hPa eddy kinetic energy. Increasing the resolution...
Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering experiments have been produced by CESM2(WACCM6). Two experiments have been performed following the CMIP6 WACCM6 SSP5-34-OS experiment as a baseline scenario with stratospheric sulfur injections to limit global warming to 1.5C or 2.0C above 1850–1900 conditions, called Geo SSP5-34-OS 1.5 and Geo SSP5-34-OS 2.0, respectively. A third experiment has been performed that follows CMIP6 WACCM6 SSP5-85 as a baseline and to limit global warming to 1.5oC, called Geo SS...
