Abstract

This contains the SST forcing files and model output for the CESM idealized runs used in 

Chiang, JCH, J Fisher, W Kong, and MJ Herman, "Intensification of the pre-Meiyu rainband in the late 21st century", submitted to Geophysical Research Letters, April 2019 

Usage Notes

Forcing files for CESM1 fixed SST runs

sst_HadOIBl_bc_0.9x1.25_clim_c040926_20062015.nc and sst_HadOIBl_bc_0.9x1.25_clim_c040926_20912100.nc contain the SST boundary condition files for the early and late 21st century runs, respectively.

Greenhouse gas concentrations used for (early / late 21st century) are: CO2 391.92 / 899.233 ppm, CH4 1793.32 / 3712.32 ppb, and N2O 323.884 / 429.625 ppb.

Model output

These output are used for figures 4c, 4d, S5c, and S5d of the paper.  Daily climatological fields averaged over the last 30 years of 35-year simulations.    

early_21st.30yr.dayclim.U.nc - early 21st century run, daily zonal wind climatology.

early_21st.30yr.dayclim.T.nc - early 21st century run, daily air temperature climatology.

late_21st_GHGs.30yr.dayclim.U.nc - late 21st century GHGs only run, daily zonal wind climatology.

late_21st_GHGs.30yr.dayclim.T.nc  - late 21st century GHGs only run, daily air temperature climatology.

late_21st_SST.30yr.dayclim.U.nc - late 21st century SST only run, daily zonal wind climatology.

late_21st_SST.30yr.dayclim.T.nc  - late 21st century SST only run, daily air temperature climatology.
