After checking your manuscript, it has come to our attention that it does not comply with our Code and Data Policy.
You have archived your code on GitHub. However, GitHub is not a suitable repository. GitHub itself instructs authors to use other alternatives for long-term archival and publishing, such as Zenodo (GitHub provides a direct way to copy your project to a Zenodo repository). Therefore, please, publish your code in one of the appropriate repositories. Also, in the GitHub repository, there is no license listed. If you do not include a license, the code continues to be your property and can not be used by others. Therefore, when uploading the model's code to the repository, you could want to choose a free software/open-source (FLOSS) license. We recommend the GPLv3. You only need to include the file 'https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.txt' as LICENSE.txt with your code. Also, you can choose other options that Zenodo provides: GPLv2, Apache License, MIT License, etc.
Moreover, you state that the model code and data will be available after publication. First, your work is already published in GMD Discussions (though it is true that the topical editor oversaw this, as it should not have been published before solving the issues here pointed out). Secondly, we do not accept this. Our policy clearly states that all the code and data must be public during the review process; otherwise, anyone who wants to review your work and contribute to the public discussion can not do it.
Please, be aware that you must include in a potential reviewed version of your manuscript the modified 'Code and Data Availability' section and the DOI of the repositories.
Please, reply as soon as possible to this comment with the link for the code and data. In this way, the materials will be available for the peer-review process and the Discussions stage, as they must be.
And please, be aware that failing to comply with it can result in the rejection of your paper for publication.
