High resolution/variable resolution

This forum is for technical and scientific questions related to running CESM with high resolution and variable resolution grids. Since many users are currently solving similar problems independently it is our hope that this forum will serve as a community resource where we can exchange ideas and experiences. With user input, we hope to compile a table of working configurations as well as document difficulties and solutions when running CESM with new grid configurations. We expect to cover the construction of grids/meshes, mapping files, and boundary data as well the configuration of component parameterizations and time step modifications specific to new grid resolutions.
