Modelling

Climate model simulations

Recent progress in computing power has enabled climate models to simulate more processes in detail and on a smaller scale. A coordinated set of experiments was designed to assess both a standard and an enhanced horizontal-resolution simulation in the atmosphere and ocean, which are summarised in our simulations. Initially each modelling centre ran a single simulation at low and high resolution, but in the second half of the project we produced additional ensemble members. We have produced a set of summary plots to allow you to quickly compare the different simulations.

The data has been uploaded to ESGF and the DOIs are shown below. Alternatively, the data can be searched using the ESGF search interface at https://esgf-index1.ceda.ac.uk/search/primavera-ceda/.

Model simulation output

The progress of our model simulations is summarised in the table below. Our CMIP6 HighResMIP simulation output has been published to the ESGF and hence is available to all from the links above. The data is also available to the project and its partners on the CEDA-JASMIN platform from the CEDA archive.

The following graphs show the progress of the on-going simulations as of today. Please refer to the above graph for more information about the parameters of each category of climate simulations. (These charts display best in the Firefox web browser.)
