IPSL-CM6A-LR is the latest version of the IPSL climate model. In addition to the physical atmosphere-land-ocean-sea ice model based on the LMDz, ORCHIDEE, NEMO (including the LIM and PISCES subcomponents) models, it also includes a representation of the carbon cycle. Modules for interactive stratospheric chemistry and tropospheric chemistry with aerosols can be activated. The IPSL climate model uses the OASIS coupler and the powerful XIOS input/output server. Model evaluation benefits from the CliMAF software.
Further description of the IPSL-CM6A-LR climate model is available on the ES-DOC interface.
Description and evaluation papers are in preparation.
