Hi strandwg, Could you share me the restart files of the case(b.e21.B1850.f09_g17.CMIP6-piControl.001), I have not an NCAR account to access the files via Globus. And the shared files have expired. I wish I can get some restart files of end of the control experiment. Thanks for your help.No. For a control run, the choice of year is arbitrary. You can assign the start date of any run to any year.
Those runs had different initial conditions from the 1850 control.
