CESM ensemble consistency test atmospheric data

Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) data from the 1.3 release series of CESM, using a present-day F compset (active atmosphere and land, data ocean, and prescribed ice concentration) and CAM5 physics. This spectral-element version of CAM uses a ne= 30 resolution, which corresponds approximately to a 1 degree global grid containing a total of 48,602 horizontal grid points and 30 vertical levels. Each simulation is 1 year in length. The files are CAM history files in NetCDF format. Each file contains two time slices: the first contains the initial condition and the second contains the annual average. There are 343 files in total, each containing 134 2D and 3D variables. (548M each).
