Grid file locations:
  • horizontal grid atm: /pool/data/ICON/grids/public/mpim/0033/icon_grid_0033_R02B08_G.nc

  • horizontal grid ocean: /pool/data/ICON/grids/public/mpim/0034/icon_grid_0034_R02B08_O.nc

  • vertical grid:

Simulated period:

30 annual cycles starting 20 Jan 2020

Resolution:
  • horizontal grid spacing of 10km (R02B08) for ocean and atmosphere

  • number of vertical levels for the atmosphere: 90

  • number of vertical levels for the ocean: 128

Comments:
  • fixed 2020 forcing (GHG, aerosol, ozone, solar radiation)

  • ~2m layer thickness in upper 20m ocean

  • has a twin experiment called rthk001 that differs only by having thicker layers (~10m layer thickness) in the upper 20m ocean

  • simple examples on how to deal with model output can be found here
