iHESP Products

Products from the iHESP project will be made publically and freely accessible as they become available in the near future.

Model Code

  • Openly accessible high resolution CESM code that is optimized for both Intel multi-core and the Chinese HPC system. Download from the iHESP github page.  
  • Openly accessible and documented RCESM code. Available from the iHESP github page.

Model Datasets

Datasets from high-resolution ocean mesoscale-eddy-resolving and atmospheric TC permitting climate simulations:

Data from CESM-HR-MIP

  • Perpetual 1950-climate simulation for 130 years. 
  • Perpetual 1950 spinup (30 years) followed by continuously-varying climate forcing from 1950-2050. 

Both these datasets can be obtained using Globus file transfer, from NCAR's "CESM HighResMIP contribution" endpoint, either by searching for endpoint name or following this globus link. We also plan to make these datasets available on the Earth Systems Grid Federation (ESGF) portal in the coming weeks.    

Data from CESM-HE (present and future climate simulations)

  • 500-year, pre-industrial control simulation with perpetual climate forcing of 1850. This dataset is available for download via the Texas A&M Datahub portal. The first 310 years of this dataset are also the QNLM data release portal
  • 250 years of transient (historical and future) climate simulation for the 1850-2100 period. The future (2005-2100) period of the latter simulation again uses the RCP8.5 scenario. This dataset is available for download via the Texas A&M Datahub portal.
  • Ensemble of 5-10 present and future climate simulations with observed and projected climate forcing from 1920 to 2050.

Data from CESM-DP-HE

  • 60-year simulation from 1958 to 2018 of the high-resolution ocean-ice model forced by the JRA55-do dataset (a modified version of the JRA-55 atmospheric reanalysis dataset designed for ocean and sea-ice modelling).
  • Ensemble of decadal climate predictions at ocean-mesoscale-eddy resolving and TC-permitting resolution for about 2000 model years.
