This ultra-high resolution global model shows developing weather patterns in rich detail, and helps researchers understand the effect of smaller, more localized weather on the dynamics of climate at the planetary scale.
Aims: To investigate influence of small (mesoscale) features in ocean, ice & atmosphere on basin and planetary scale climate. Utilize the Community Earth System Model (CESM) at high-resolution.
Animation: Global precipitation and sea surface temperature, daily, from a typical model year and from a (randomly chosen) year (2004) of observational datasets.
