3. Model Output

CAM 3.0 produces a series of NetCDF-format history files containing atmospheric gridpoint data generated during the course of a run. It also produces a series of binary restart files necessary to continue a run once it has terminated successfully and a series of initial conditions files that may be used to initialize new simulations. The formats of these datasets are described below.
