The Community Land Model (CLM) is the land model for the Community Earth System Model (CESM). It is a collaborative project between scientists in the Terrestrial Sciences Section (TSS) and the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the CESM Land Model and Biogeochemistry Working Groups. Other principal working groups that contribute to the CLM are the Chemistry-Climate, Paleoclimate, Climate Variability and Change, and Land Ice Working Groups.

CICE5 is the latest version of the Los Alamos Sea Ice Model, sometimes referred to as the Community Ice CodE. It is the result of a community effort to develop a portable, efficient sea ice model that can be run coupled in a global climate model or uncoupled as a stand-alone ice model. It has been released as the sea ice component of the Community Earth System Model (CESM), a fully-coupled global climate model that provides simulations of the earths past, present and future climate states. CICE is supported on high- and low-resolution Greenland Pole and tripole grids, which are identical to those used by the Parallel Ocean Program (POP) ocean model. The high resolution version is best suited for simulating present-day and future climate scenarios while the low resolution option is used for paleoclimate simulations and debugging. Future releases of CICE will be handed through the CICE Consortium.

Support of specific science objectives of the CESM and maintaining a state-of-the-art ocean component for the CESM as well as conducting related, but curiosity-driven, research leading to new contributions to the CESM community are the primary goals of the Ocean Model Working Group (OMWG). The former goals ensure that our working group, through CESM, fully contributes to science. The latter is absolutely necessary to keep the CESM at the leading edge of ocean climate models. This, of course, requires a continuous high level of effort and support. Information on the new ocean model component of the CESM can be found at http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/models/cesm1.0/pop2/.

The Paleoclimate Working Group contributes to the our understanding of climate change through hindcast simulations, comparing model results to data given forcings and boundary conditions (i.e. CMIP5 and PMIP3) and through sensitivity simulations to explore uncertainties in forcings. The working group is also involved in the development of modules for CESM for paleoclimate applications. Many paleoclimate modelling questions can be answered in the Paleo documentation. The Paleoclimate forum is intended for questions regarding implementation of forcings and boundary conditions specific to paleoclimate modeling.

The CESM data models perform the basic function of reading external data, modifying that data, and then sending it to the driver via standard CESM coupling interfaces. The driver and other models have no fundamental knowledge of whether another component is fully active or just a data model. In some cases, data models are prognostic and also receive and use some data sent by the driver to the data model. But in most cases, the data models are not running prognostically and have no need to receive any data from the driver.
