The Coupled Model Intercomparison Programs (CMIP) organized by the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) provides an important platform for the development and assessment of the Earth system model (ESM). At present, CMIP6 is undergoing the experiments, which are the most important tasks of the ESM’s development groups. Based on the First Institute of Oceanography-Earth System Model version 1.0 (FIO-ESM v1.0), which is the first ESM coupled with the ocean surface waves and participated CMIP5, FIO-ESM v2.0 has been frozen and carrying out the CMIP6 experiments. This paper introduces the framework of FIO-ESM v2.0, and four distinctive physical processes, which are wave-induced mixing, air-sea flux induced by stokes drift, heat flux associated with sea spray, and SST diurnal cycle scheme. And the plans of FIO-ESM v2.0 participation in CMIP6 experiments are also introduced.

Key words: FIO-ESM, CMIP6, Ocean surface waves, Earth system model (ESM)
