NCAR CAM3 Default Version


This NCAR CAM3 run was done with the default version of CAM3.0. The dust is prescribed and only shortwave interactions with climate. This data set consists of two types of files. Daily netcdf gz files each containing a month of netcdf files of daily data. and netcdf files of monthly data. The daily netcdf.gz files are fairly large 400 Mb files, so the user should consider limiting data orders to 1-3 months at a time. As noted in the doc file, after ordering data, monthly data will be found in files with the "h0" name, daily data in "h1" files.
