Main differences between three model versions (LR, MR, P)

MPI-ESM-LR ("Low Resolution")

Atmosphere

T63, 47 levels up to 0.01 hPa

Ocean

GR15 (~1.5°), 40 levels

Land

dynamic natural vegetation

Orbit

time dependent

MPI-ESM-P ("Paleo Version")

Atmosphere

T63, 47 levels up to 0.01 hPa

Ocean

GR15 (~1.5°), 40 levels

Land

feedback of dynamic vegetation and land use on the climate development is neglected, external land use data are included

Orbit

orbital parameters (Kepler orbit parameter) are fixed unless mentioned otherwise in the specific exp. description

MPI-ESM-MR ("Mixed Resolution")

Atmosphere

T63, 95 levels up to 0.01 hPa

Ocean

TP04 (~0.4°), 40 levels

Land

dynamic natural vegetation

Orbit

time dependent
