Use of this subset of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Climate System Model (CSM) output is currently open to all scientists involved in activities under the U.S. National Assessment of climate change. Use of this CSM dataset is subject to the following guidelines and restrictions:
  1. Users will not redistribute any items in the dataset to other parties without permission from the Dataset Manager.  The Dataset Manager is Aiguo Dai
  2. The dataset is considered to be a beta version and is subject to revision until publicly released. Individuals who complete this registration form will be notified of dataset revisions, extensions, and public release.
  3. To help identify dataset errors or inconsistencies, we request that users contact the Dataset Manager regarding problems with data files, data access, file format, etc.
