DOE Climate Change Prediction Program
MetadataShow full item record
Scientists in the DOE Climate Change Prediction Program recently completed a 1,000-year run of a powerful new climate system model on a supercomputer at NERSC. The millennium long simulation of the new Community Climate System Model (CCSM2) ran for more than 200 uninterrupted days on the IBM SP supercomputer at NERSC. The lengthy run served as a kind of “shakedown cruise” for the new version of the climate model and demonstrated that its variability is stable, even when run for century-after-century simulations. The 1,000-year CCSM2 run had a total drift of just one-half of one degree Celsius, compared to older versions with two to three times as much variance.
