what is the difference between input data and forcing data for a coupled model run in CESM1.2.2


New Member
Running a coupled model with F compset and two different CAM physics downloaded its input data from the server. Now, i have few questions for some clarification before analyzing them.

1- Suppose my model is already in a balance state with appropriate recommended spin-up, do i need any extra forcing data apart from what the model downloaded itself. If the answer is NO, then does the input data can be termed as Forcing data in this specific context?

2- Does input data for both CLM and CAM will be enough for the run.
