Climate System Model VisualizationsEntry ID: ucar.scd.vets.vg.csm
Abstract: Surface temperature and its predicted change due to increased levels of
greenhouse gases are simulated over a period of several decades using the NCAR
Climate System Model. The Climate System Model (CSM) project formally began in
January 1994 with the long-term goal of building, maintaining, and continually
improving a comprehensive model of the climate system. The CSM is composed of 4
independent models (ocean, atmosphere, sea ice, and land surface) that
communicate using the "Flux Coupler". The following images and animations are
visualizations from the CSM project and represent data from the different model
components as noted. Red depicts warming, blue depicts cooling.
