 OM007: Modeling the Climate System at High Resolution

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.
