Marika will ask Dave Hart to increase the thresholds if the machine truly is underutilized (as long as this could be done for the rest of the allocation period).
Co-chairs will notify their working groups to run in economy for the month of November.
Integrations – LE Runs, Last Millennium, CLM4.5-CAM5 Coupled Run, Others?
6 runs in progress: full forcing, volcanic only, solar only, GHG only, Land use/cover only, and one other. These runs are out a few hundred years. 850 control run mostly done
CLM4.5 coupled run
Amazon forest about 1/3 as healthy as it should be in the coupled run. Since this is the biggest carbon stock on the planet, this is a big deal. Same problem exists in 2 deg run. Dave L is going through a sequence of sensitivity experiments to understand it. It seems like there is a feedback: low RH -> low leaf area, and things die back. Does not seem to be due to precipitation... now looking at other possible factors
To relieve glade space, plan to delete the original history files, only saving time slices. This means: if there's anything you want to do with the raw history files, do that now! They're doing finishing touches on BAMS proposal. Note that only AMWG and OMWG are doing diagnostics on these – due to lack of liaisons for the other groups. But they have confirmed that they're saving the files needed to run the other diagnostics in the future.
CSEG (Decaf?!?) Coffee Talk https://trello.com/b/y8bYsqB0/cseg-tutorial-ideas
Rich: Would be good to have a longer talk on coding standards, maybe bringing more uniformity and quality across component
Cecile: important to have scientists involved in development of this. She volunteers to help with this.
Gokhan: points out that some software engineering changes (e.g., in coupler) have made it harder to do some
science changes. This points to the need for a 2-way dialogue.
We are moving a lot of the software engineering planning to trello. e.g., we have cpl, clm, cam boards showing upcoming tasks & projects
