I. Top Level Description This dataset archives a simulation with Community Climate System Model version 3 (CCSM3) known as lpia.lowstand.vegetation. It was called icehouse.noglaciation in Heavens et al. (2015), the publication in which it was first reported in the peer-reviewed literature. This publication should be used for reference concerning the overarching methodology of the simulation. The simulation was run on the bluefire machine operated by the Computational Information Systems Laboratory (CISL) of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) between 29 March 2011 and 7 May 2011. The included README.TXT provides a more detailed description. References: Heavens, N.G., N.M. Mahowald, G.S. Soreghan, M.J. Soreghan, C.A.
