Sub-hourly output over Tropical Western Pacific for June, July, August 1997

Mitovski,Toni; Cole, Jason N. S.; Zhang, Guang J.

To evaluate the simulation of deep convection over the Tropical Western Pacific (TWP) in the Canadian Atmospheric Model version 4.3 (CanAM4.3) we compare sub-hourly output against output from the super-parameterized Community Atmospheric Model version 5 (spCAM5). Both models used observed sea-surface temperatures, sea-ice distribution and atmospheric gases and simulated the period January through August, 1997. Model output related to deep convection for CanAM4.3 is saved every 15 minutes over the region bounded by 150 and 170 E and 0 to 10 N while the spCAM5 output was saved every 10 minutes over the same region. The CanAM4.3 data includes results from a single simulation and from a 5 member ensemble of CanAM4.3 simulations.
