Six ensemble average of the CCSM4 monthly surface temperature anomaly (relative to 1850-1899 average for each month) from Jan 1850 to Dec 2100, from CMIP5 historical + RCP8.5 scenario runs.

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.

CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

This research was enabled by NCAR's Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) compute and storage resources. Bluefire, a 4,064-processor IBM Power6 resource with a peak of 77 TeraFLOPS provided more than 7.5 million computing hours.
