Coupled Spin-Up Model
From Unofficial BOINC Wiki
This model is the first to include a dynamic ocean; previous models have only had a Slab Ocean.
This experiment runs for 200 years without any Phases or Forcings. This is required to get the ocean into equilibrium with the atmosphere with which it has been given. In orther words it appears rather boring but it is necessary to gets things into equilibrium before a Hindcast can be run.
 More about running the model
This is in progress but it is not planned to be publically released. The fastest 200 - 500 computers have been invited to join because it is a 200 year model and Results are needed by February 2006 for the Transient Coupled Model launch.
