SciDAC Collaborative Design and Development
of the Community Climate System Model:
Milestone for Q1 of 2005
The Community Climate System
is a collaborative effort involving NSF, DOE and NASA aimed
at providing US researchers with state of the art coupled climate simulation
capabilities. The DOE national laboratories involved are ANL, LANL,
LLNL, LBL, ORNL and PNL. The National Center for Atmospheric Research
and the NASA/Goddard Data Assimilation Office are the primary, non-DOE
collaborators. John Drake (email@example.com) and Phil Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org)
are co-PI's for the project and the primary contacts.
Milestone: 2005 Q4 Has Been Met
Q4 Performance Metric:Conduct coupled simulations of the climate system including the carbon and sulfur cycles (POP2/biogeochemistry, CAM3/sulfur+carbon) with an interactive land surface model component.
This integration used code based on the ccsm3_0_brnchT_bgc18 tag of the CCSM repository with the following modifications:
- 1. POP1.4.3 replaced with POP2
- 2. tropospheric chemistry modified to output DMS flux.
And the following optional BGC components were active:
- 1. Full tropospheric chemistry
- 2. CASA' land model
- 3. The CO2_DMSA coupling option (fully interactive CO2 and DMS fluxes)
- 1. Land carbon pools were initialized with year 69 of f12.001 run.
- 2. After a one month initial run, a continuation run was started using an 8-year spinup ocean restart.
Results from the simulations is posted on our
project wiki .
