The authors wish to acknowledge members of NCAR's Climate Modeling Section, Computer Software and Engineering Group, and Scientific Computing Division for their contributions to the development of CAM 3.0.

The new model would not exist without the significant input from members of the CCSM Atmospheric Model Working Group (AMWG) too numerous to mention. Bill Collins (NCAR), Leo Donner (GFDL), James Hack (NCAR), David Randall (Colorado State University), and Phil Rasch (NCAR) were the co-chairs of the AMWG during the development of CAM 3.0.

We would like to acknowledge the substantial contributions to the CAM 3.0 effort from the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Finally, we would like to thank Chris Bretherton, Andrew Gettelman, Steve Ghan, David Randall, Jón-Egill Kristjánsson, and Minghua Zhang for their close reading and thorough critique of this document.
