  abstract = {{This paper presents the major characteristics of the Institut Pierre
Simon Laplace (IPSL) coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model.
The model components and the coupling methodology are described, as well
as the main characteristics of the climatology and interannual
variability. The model results of the standard version used for IPCC
climate projections, and for intercomparison projects like the
Paleoclimate Modeling Intercomparison Project (PMIP 2) are compared to
those with a higher resolution in the atmosphere. A focus on the North
Atlantic and on the tropics is used to address the impact of the
atmosphere resolution on processes and feedbacks. In the North Atlantic,
the resolution change leads to an improved representation of the
storm-tracks and the North Atlantic oscillation. The better
representation of the wind structure increases the northward salt
transports, the deep-water formation and the Atlantic meridional
overturning circulation. In the tropics, the ocean-atmosphere dynamical
coupling, or Bjerknes feedback, improves with the resolution. The
amplitude of ENSO (El Ni{\~n}o-Southern oscillation) consequently
increases, as the damping processes are left unchanged.

  abstract = {{The winter of 2009/2010 was characterized by record persistence of the
negative phase of the North-Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) which caused
several severe cold spells over Northern and Western Europe. This
somehow unusual winter with respect to the most recent ones arose
concurrently with public debate on climate change, during and after the
Copenhagen climate negotiations. We show however that the cold European
temperature anomaly of winter 2010 was (i) not extreme relative to
winters of the past six decades, and (ii) warmer than expected from its
record-breaking seasonal circulation indices such as NAO or blocking
frequency. Daily flow-analogues of winter 2010, taken in past winters,
were associated with much colder temperatures. The winter 2010 thus
provides a consistent picture of a regional cold event mitigated by
long-term climate warming.

  abstract = {{The Preliminary VOCALS Model Assessment (PreVOCA) aims to assess
contemporary atmospheric modeling of the subtropical South East Pacific,
with a particular focus on the clouds and the marine boundary layer
(MBL). Models results from fourteen modeling centers were collected
including operational forecast models, regional models, and global
climate models for the month of October 2006. Forecast models and global
climate models produced daily forecasts, while most regional models were
run continuously during the study period, initialized and forced at the
boundaries with global model analyses. Results are compared in the
region from 40{\deg} S to the equator and from 110{\deg} W to 70{\deg} W,
corresponding to the Pacific coast of South America. Mean-monthly model
surface winds agree well with QuikSCAT observed winds and models agree
fairly well on mean weak large-scale subsidence in the region next to
the coast. However they have greatly differing geographic patterns of
mean cloud fraction with only a few models agreeing well with MODIS
observations. Most models also underestimate the MBL depth by several
hundred meters in the eastern part of the study region. The diurnal
cycle of liquid water path is underestimated by most models at the
85{\deg} W 20{\deg} S stratus buoy site compared with satellite,
consistent with previous modeling studies. The low cloud fraction is
also underestimated during all parts of the diurnal cycle compared to
surface-based climatologies. Most models qualitatively capture the MBL
deepening around 15 October 2006 at the stratus buoy, associated with
colder air at 700 hPa.
