4.4 Porting the model to new resolutions

If the user needs to run the model at resolutions that aren't provided in the above set of datasets they will need additional datasets. The user will need to create an atmospheric initial-condition dataset as well as a SST dataset for this resolution. The user could do this by interpolating the datasets that are provided. Currently we do not provide tools to do this interpolation. Also when running at a different resolution land model datasets will need to be created from the high resolution datasets. These are available in the download section of the main
