ABSTRACT
The article presents a description and evaluation of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) Mk3L climate system model. It is inferred that the model is designed for millenial-scale climate simulation which includes representations of the atmosphere, ocean, sea ice, and land surface. Moreover, CSIRO Mk3L offers a combination of computational efficiency and a stable and realistic control climatology.
