UPDATES

10 September 2012 - COOKIE and CREAM experimental protocols published

Posted by Bjorn Stevens and Traute Crueger

Clouds On-Off Klimate Intercomparison Experiment:

The outcome of the EUCLIPSE project led to new experiment packages, which are centered around the CFMIP experiments. The basis represents COOKIE (Clouds On-Off Klimate Intercomparison Experiment), which aims at the exploration of the influence of cloud radiation effects on climate and climate change.

The other experiment group, which we call CREAM (Clouds Radiation, Easy Aerosol and More) extends the COOKIE framework. A motivation, introduction as well as some technical issues of the experiment packages can be found in a pdf file (download).


Extensions in the CMIP5_Amon and CMIP5_day tables necessary for COOKIE:

expt_id_ok: 'offAMIP' 'offamip'
expt_id_ok: '4xCO2 offAMIP' 'offamip4xCO2'
expt_id_ok: 'offAMIP plus 4K anomaly' 'offamip4K'
expt_id_ok: 'offaqua planet control' 'offaquaControl'
expt_id_ok: '4xCO2 offaqua planet' 'offaqua4xCO2'
expt_id_ok: 'offaqua planet plus 4K anomaly' 'offaqua4K'
expt_id_ok: 'offpblAMIP' 'offpblamip'
expt_id_ok: '4xCO2 offpblAMIP' 'offpblamip4xCO2'
           (not included in COOKIE table 4)
