Notes on the downscaling experiments conducted by Parker MacCready as part of the SciDAC project on improved representation of freshwater sources in global climate models.

Run Log

B2002, C2003-9





Like C2005 but with most diagnostics and averages saved. Total size is about 5.2 TB.

Stored on boiler in /data1/parker/roms/output/Cdia2005_[his, avg, dia]/

S[45, 85]_OcAcT2005R2005_[2005, 2099] (four runs)

"Parker, the four forcing configurations I provided are “free runs”. They are from the CESM contributions to CMIP5: 2005-2099 future projection. But the other cases, JCAM2005 and Tpop2005 on your list, they are from the CAM and POP reanalysis specifically for 2005." Note from Yu-Heng 4/1/2015

Notes on the S-series forcing files (Yu-heng Tseng 2014/1/8)

YEAR 2099
CCSM4 1deg RCP8.5 Ensemble Member #7
CCSM4 1deg RCP6.0 Ensemble Member #6
CCSM4 1deg RCP4.5 Ensemble Member #6

each directory includes the following directories
atforcin:atmospheric CAM forcing
interior/domain_40_55N_136_120W:oceani pop data (SALT, SSH, TEMP, UVEL and VVEL)
lnd/proc/tseries/monthly: runoff data
The runoff data has the same dimension as the other ocean data (2D). (Maximum at i=11, j=14)

For each RCP scenario, there is "only one" simulation (MOAR) which has 3hrly coupler output (for atmosphere).It also has daily UVEL and VVEL.
2005 data is also available there. But the data is different from the data assimilated POP/CAM forcing I provide earlier (c.da48.2c).

Also 2005 is also there. Let me know if you find anything else missing.

These cases have the same initial condition of 2005 to rcp8.5 (luckily, this is the year we start the simulation). So the first year climate mean status will not differ too much for these scenarios.
For rcp2.6 scenario, there is no high-frequency output. So, we cannot run that.
Then we can compare rcp4.5 2099, rcp6.0 2099, rcp 8.5 2099 and rcp 8.5 2005 all together.
