NCAR Community Climate System Model 4.0 (CCSM4.0)
Entry ID: NCAR_MODEL_CCSM3


Summary
Abstract: The Community Climate System Model (CCSM) is a coupled climate model for simulating the earth's climate system. Composed of four separate models simultaneously simulating the earth's atmosphere, ocean, land surface and sea-ice, and one central coupler component, the CCSM allows researchers to conduct fundamental research into the earth's past, present and future climate states.
