Short summary
In order to evaluate climate models, scientists have historically run them using prescribed (for example observed) sea surface temperatures; however, no such restriction is typically applied to the land. This study presents a method of prescribing the land temperatures in a climate model and shows that the resultant climate simulation is consistent with the free running simulation. Such a model will be useful for perturbing and fixing surface temperatures globally, as demonstrated in this paper.
