[NARCCAP-discuss] CCSM SSTs

I have a quick question about the GCM SSTs used to drive the RCMs. Specifically, I'd like to know what CCSM field is used. From what I can see on ESG, there is a monthly SST file: b30.030e.pop.h.SST.1870-01_cat_1999-12.nc. I think that file is technically the temperature of the top 10m of the ocean though. I know surface skin temperature from the atmospheric model is also sometimes used as a proxy for SSTs. Does anyone know which file was actually used? Thank you in advance for the help.
