Introduction to how to find and use CMIP data on the filesystem at NCI.
Authors: Paola Petrelli, Claire Trenham
The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5), following 3 previous generations, is a product of the World Climate Research Programme. The data is a core component of the work of most climate scientists, as well as scientists in many related fields including ecology, resource management, and ocean/atmosphere modelling.
CMIP5 data, along with a number of other data collections, is distributed via the Earth Systems Grid Federation (ESGF) of distributed data nodes around the planet. One such data repository is held at NCI and serves the Australian climate community.
This course provides an induction into accessing CMIP5 data on the NCI's Raijin or VDI systems, and using related data services and tools.
It means to give an introduction into the complex CMIP organisation for new users of the data.
