Representation of the Land Surface in the Regional Arctic System Model (RASM)
MetadataShow full item record
The Regional Arctic System Model (RASM) is a highresolution regional Earth System Model whose domain includes the entire Arctic drainage basin. The development of RASM is motivated by the objective to advance understanding of the Arctic climate system and to improve decadal climate predictions in high northern latitudes. Land surface processes in RASM are simulated using the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) hydrologic model and the RVIC streamflow routing model coupled within the CESM modeling framework.
Prepared for the 2014 AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, CA. Results from RASM simulations are based on development version Tag-27.
