Climate model simulations

View status of on-going modelling!

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 has been designed to assess both a standard and an enhanced horizontal-resolution simulation in the atmosphere and ocean.

See our simulations for details. A set of summary plots of the simulations is available.

The data is currently being uploaded to ESGF - this will take a few months to complete, but should be fully available by mid-late 2019. Check the doi's below, or using the ESGF search interface https://esgf-node.llnl.gov/search/cmip6/.

Model simulation output

The progress of our model simulations is summarised in the table below. Our CMIP6 HighResMIP simulation output will be published to the ESGF (and hence be open to all) as soon as we are able to do so, beginning in early-mid 2019. In the meantime the data is available to the project and its partners on the CEDA-JASMIN platform (please contact us).

Model simulations are stored on JASMIN. For more information, please contact us.

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.)
