Modeling the Couplings Across the Earth Surface in CESM

Jean-Francois Lamarque

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a comprehensive global Earth System model. As such, it requires the representation of many coupling across the various components (land, ice, ocean, atmosphere). In this talk, I will most focus on the current and upcoming representations of the physical and chemical couplings across the Earth surface in CESM.
