This page describes the different configurations of ACCESS-ESM 1.5 currently available and how to access them.
ESM stands for Earth System Model. ACCESS-ESM is a coupled model with the following components:
|Land Surface||CABLE||Part of UM|
We strongly recommend that you run ACCESS-ESM 1.5 using the payu driver. CSIRO is running the CMIP6 submission runs using a setup based on KSH scripts. The CMS team is working to adapt those configurations to payu.
Please contact the CMS team if you would like a configuration that isn't currently available in payu or if you have any problems running a ACCESS-ESM 1.5 simulation with payu.
You can download the configuration by typing
$ git clone https://github.com/coecms/esm-pre-industrial.git
The website of the configuration also contains detailed instructions on how to run the model.
Default configuration, based off CSIRO ksh scripts
Currently contains two models from the PMIP4 setting: Last Interglacial and Mid-Holocene.
Please refer to the main page to know where to download the configurations from.
