The overall goal of the present proposal CP-2 is to improve the EC-Earth climate model for the purpose of better climate prediction and projection. In particular, the project explores the potential of climate prediction on decadal time scale and investigates the impact of different climate system components coupled to the core climate model. We aim at ensemble simulations in two different simulations and improving effects of initializations. In addition, we propose to test the impact of updated and additional climate system components on climate prediction and projection.
