I am a new user to cesm. I am using cesm1.2.2. I am interested in running cesm in the forecast mode, particularly, would like to investigate the El Nino and La Nina case of 1997-98. I already performed a simulation for the compset 'F_2000_CAM5' with SE core of 1 deg resolution. However, the results did not show the desired results. I have learnt that I need to check my initial conditions. Please suggest me where to find or how to create initial conditions for investigating the desired case. I want to have initial conditions for July 1997 and want to go for a higher resolution (1/4 deg). Also, please suggest what other inputs would be required.
