Model Description

The physical core model of CMCC ESM is a coupled atmosphere ocean general circulation model, composed of ECHAM5 atmosphere, NEMO (OPA8.2) for ocean, and LIM2 for sea-ice models. The OASIS coupler is used to exchange the relevant fields. The carbon cycle module includes the SILVA terrestrial vegetation model and the PELAGOS marine biogeochemistry model.
