OM007:
Modeling the Climate System at High Resolution


Session ID#: 28214

Session Description:
Realistic Earth System Models are the primary means of projecting the Earth’s future climate state. Model development efforts are underway to include novel components and processes, with many efforts holding the potential to play a significant role in reducing model projection uncertainty. These changes include, but are not limited to: land ice and ice shelf models that interact with the ocean; refined representation of ocean mesoscale processes such as boundary currents and transient eddies; weather-scale phenomena in the atmosphere; leads and polynyas in sea ice. We solicit presentations that explore the impacts of such novel components within coupled models, including their impact for baseline and future climate scenarios. The representation of the ocean meridional overturning circulation and deep water formation; air-sea interaction processes such as those related to feedbacks between ocean eddies and atmospheric storm tracks; eddy-mean flow interactions and the transfer of energy across space-time scales; and cryosphere/ocean interactions affecting sea level projections are all of great interest. Comparisons to standard climate model simulations are encouraged, as well as examinations of forced counterpart component model simulations.
