Restart file for CESM pre-industrial control run


Where can I find the restart file for CESM pre-industrial control run? The case name is b40_1850_1d_b08c5cn_138j. 

Thank  you very much for helping or replying! ;)




If you can be more specific as to the year, I can help.



Thank you very much for the reply!!!

Since I would like to extend the run, I would like to restart from 310 (or the year around) so it can help me to check if I have the same run setting compared to the original one. Could you please help me? If you only have the restart file starting from 319th (the end point of the control run), it also works.

Thanks again and have a nice day!





We have a complete restart set from year 0309; will that work?



I've made available the year 0309 restart from b40_1850_1d_b08c5cn_138j via anonymous ftp:

Our ftp space is extremely limited and aggressively scrubbed so please let me know when you have retrieved the file.



Thank you very much! I have downloaded this data. Thank you for the warm help!

Best wishes!






I would very much like to use those same files, is it possible to reupload them, please?

Thanks in advance,



The tarfile

has been restored to the ftp site in the earlier email.


Hello Strandwg,


I am attempting to execute:

./create_newcase -case /scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/cases/Production_Runs/B.PI.01_0_CN.x1.122 -mach daint -res f09_g16 -compset B_1850_CAM5_CN


<!--"CLM configure options (char) " -->

<entry id="CLM_CONFIG_OPTS"   value="-phys clm4_5 -bgc cn"  />


The simulation builds, and downloads files. However, when the simulation executes, it dies:


(shr_stream_set) filename = /scratch/snx3000/jbuzan/inputdata/atm/datm7/NASA_LIS/

 check_dim ERROR: mismatch of input dimension        28110  with expected value

Thanks a lot, I have finished downloading the data.

If it's not a hassle, would it also be possible to make available the restart data for the 20th century all-forcings run, starting in 1980 or 1981? The ones that led to the b40.20th.track1.1deg.00X cases.

Again thanks, and sorry if this is not the place for such requests.


This is the right place to ask and I'm the right person to ask.

I've created tarfiles of both the 1980 restart sets and the model setups for each of the 6 20th century runs we did with the CCSM4 configuration of the model and the data from which were submitted to CMIP5.

All are available from


Total 12 files, about 29 GB of space.


Let me know of any questions/problems with the files.



Thank you very much! I'm downloading everything and will let you know as soon as it finishes.


The downloading is done thanks! Just a question, is there a file or something with the B_1850-2000_TRACK1_CN (B20TRTR1CN) compset used in these runs? It's not on the supported ones in create_newcase. Is it different from regular B_1850-2000_CN?

Again, thanks for the great help.
