  • The CCSM4 ocean component 

    Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Bates, Susan C.; Briegleb, Bruce P.; Jayne, Steven R.; Jochum, Markus; Large, William G.; Peacock, Synte; Yeager, Stephen G. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-03-01)
    The ocean component of the Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) is described, and its solutions from the twentieth-century (20C) simulations are documented in comparison with observations and those of CCSM3. ...
  • The impact of oceanic near-inertial waves on climate 

    Jochum, Markus; Briegleb, Bruce P.; Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Large, William G.; Norton, Nancy J.; Jayne, Steven R.; Alford, Matthew H.; Bryan, Frank O. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-05-01)
    The Community Climate System Model, version 4 (CCSM4) is used to assess the climate impact of wind-generated near-inertial waves (NIWs). Even with high-frequency coupling, CCSM4 underestimates the strength of NIWs, so that ...
  • Improving oceanic overflow representation in climate models : the Gravity Current Entrainment Climate Process Team 

    Legg, Sonya; Ezer, Tal; Jackson, Laura; Briegleb, Bruce P.; Danabasoglu, Gokhan; Large, William G.; Wu, Wanli; Chang, Yeon; Ozgokmen, Tamay M.; Peters, Hartmut; Xu, Xiaobiao; Chassignet, Eric P.; Gordon, Arnold L.; Griffies, Stephen; Hallberg, Robert; Price, James F.; Riemenschneider, Ulrike; Yang, Jiayan (American Meteorological Society, 2009-05)
    Oceanic overflows are bottom-trapped density currents originating in semienclosed basins, such as the Nordic seas, or on continental shelves, such as the Antarctic shelf. Overflows are the source of most of the abyssal ...
  • Mean biases, variability, and trends in air–sea fluxes and sea surface temperature in the CCSM4 

    Bates, Susan C.; Fox-Kemper, Baylor; Jayne, Steven R.; Large, William G.; Stevenson, Samantha; Yeager, Stephen G. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-11-15)
    Air–sea fluxes from the Community Climate System Model version 4 (CCSM4) are compared with the Coordinated Ocean-Ice Reference Experiment (CORE) dataset to assess present-day mean biases, variability errors, and late ...
