UM 11.3

The Met Office have released version 11.3 of the UM. It's installed on ARCHER and MONSooN, so feel free to upgrade any suites as may be relevant. The list of CMS supported versions is here.

UKESM1 Released

UKESM1 is the first release of the UK Earth System Model. Built as a joint venture by the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), UKESM1 consists of the HadGEM3 coupled physical climate model plus additional components that model key biogeochemical, chemistry, aerosol and vegetation processes.

Two model configurations are now available for use following the CMIP6 pre-industrial and historical (1850-2014) experiment protocols. Instructions are also provided on how to run the model following either the CMIP6 1% transient CO2 or abrupt 4xCO2 protocols. An atmosphere-land only (AMIP) configuration of UKESM1 will also be released shortly.

Researchers wishing to use UKESM1 should read the instructions provided on how to access and configure the model to run on either NERC or Met Office computer systems.
