Abstract

CCMVal was a large international effort to improve understanding of Chemistry-Climate Models (CCMs) and their underlying GCMs (General Circulation Models) through process-oriented evaluation, along with discussion and coordinated analysis of science results. The first round of CCMVal (CCMVal-1) evaluated only a limited set of key processes in the CCMs, focusing mainly on dynamics and transport.

This dataset contains GEOSCCM model output from the WMO 2006 REF1 experiment run by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
