UPDATES OF LARGE & YEAGER (2004) DATA SET FROM CORE I v.1 (NYF) AND CORE II v.1 (IAF) OUTLINE: - CORE II v.2 (IAF) per Hobart WGOMD Meeting, - FUTURE PLANS, - PROPOSED SEA-ICE INITIAL CONDITIONS
SUMMARY OF CHANGES FOR CORE II v.2 Completed through year 2004 (2006 by December), Wind speed correction based on QSCAT (2000-2004),* Wind direction adjustments,* Adjust specific humidity instead of relative humidity, Short-wave down is lowered by 5% everywhere (not just +/-30 o ),* Albedo depends on latitude, Bug corrections.
Wind Speed Multiply by R s (, ) Wind Direction Add (, ) 1.1 ci=.1 ci=5 o ccw Most regions within ±5º Increase (up to 1.6) almost everywhere

FUTURE PLANS Submit Manuscript (September), Update through year 2006 when ISCCP-FD is received (August-December), Seasonal and/or inter-annual runoff variability(?), Prepare CORE I v.2 (NYF) accounting for sea-ice.
PROPOSED SEA ICE INITIAL CONDITIONS (Developed by David Bailey at NCAR) Based on ice fraction (IFRAC) data sets from either observations (SSM/I) or another model for any month, day, etc., IFRAC is created on the target model grid, Simple, Portable, Easy to document.
