Dataset for Simulations of the present-day Arctic climate with the super-parameterized community Earth system model
We compare aspects of the present-day Arctic climate as simulated with the Community Earth System Model (CESM), and its super-parameterized counterpart (SP-CESM). Several observational and reanalysis datasets are used to evaluate important features of the simulated Arctic climates. We find that the present-day climate simulated with SP-CESM has more realistic surface air temperature, sea ice area and thickness, and sea level pressure compared to the conventional CESM. Observations from the Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean (SHEBA) experiment show that in winter the Arctic exhibits two ...
