NCAR CESM2 Large Ensemble Cloud-Optimized Dataset

The National Center for Atmospheric Research partnered with the IBS Center for Climate Physics in South Korea to generate the CESM2 Large Ensemble which consists of 100 members at 1 degree spatial resolution covering the period 1850-2100 under CMIP6 historical and SSP370 future radiative forcing scenarios. Data sets from this ensemble were made available via the Climate Data Gateway on June 14th, 2021.
