JAMES Special Issue about the MPI-ESM, its components and the CMIP5 simulations

The new Earth system model MPI-ESM will be scientifically documented by a series of papers. These include a full overview over the MPI-ESM as well as publications which focus on phenomena and processes within the whole model or one of its components. Many of the submitted papers are based on the CMIP5 runs, but also more exotic configurations of the model, which go beyond the CMIP5 protocol, are discussed.

In agreement with Dave Randall, the publisher of   Opens external link in current windowJournal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems  (JAMES), a Opens external link in current windowspecial electronic edition about the MPI-ESM has been published.
