    • Data portal •

Over 0.5PB of output from simulations is freely accessible through four methods:
  • URL directory tree lists. There are two simple directory tree lists URL lists. Data can be retrieved manually through a browser or through a script using wget or something similar.
    •  Disk at NERSC : Smaller and frequently accessed files from a disk archive at NERSC. Generally this means:
      • All "fixed" ("fx") variables
      • All "month" ("mon") variables
      • The following "day/atmos" ("Aday") variables: clt, hurs, huss, pr, prw, ps, psl, rsds, tas, tasmax, and tasmin, as well as uas and vas from higher-resolution models
      • "mon/atmos-WRAF*-v4-1" and "day/atmos-WRAF*-v4-1" regional averages
    •  Tape at NERSC : Larger and infrequently accessed files from a tape archive at NERSC. Generally this means:
      • "day/atmos" ("Aday") variables not listed above
      • "day/land" ("Lday") variables
      • "3hr" ("3hr") variables
      Note that it can take a few minutes for a file to be located on tape.
    Note that the "C20C" and "HAPPI" directories in the archive only contain model-independent boundary condition data (such as observed sea surface temperature data that has not been regridded to any model's grid). The simulation data is all found under the institute directories (e.g. "LBNL", "MIROC5").
  •  The main portal : All data is available through this single interface. Features include selection by clicking and search, and download by clicking and wget scripts. This interface provides merged access to the NERSC disk and tape URL directories. Currently the merged interface is not always up to date on file availability, so sometimes it may be necessary to scan through the disk and tape directories manually in order to determine current availability.
  • A  Globus Shared endpoint : This provides the fastest transfer times. Currently this only has access to the NERSC disk directory though (i.e. not the data on tape). A Globus account is required.
  •  Facility for Climate Assessments : Selected monthly output is now available through the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory FACTS site. This facility allows online visualisation and visual comparison of simulation output (overview paper).
Please contact dastone@runbox.com if none of these methods meet your needs.

The data is provided "as-is". The contributors have endeavoured to ensure quality control, however due to the large quantity of data it has not been possible to check everything in detail. If you spot anything odd in the data then please e-mail the people listed in the "contact" attribute of the NetCDF file. For issues with the data portal, contact dstone@lbl.gov. Errata are listed in the "details" files referenced in the table below.

If your analyses of this data themselves produce diagnostic data or output from "impacts" models that may be of interest to other researchers, please consider contributing them to the data portal. Protocols are described on the Experiment page.

    • Errata •


  • 2020/05/04: Some LBNL/CAM5.1.2-0.25degree/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/day/atmos/hurs/run002 files had not had the division-by-100 correction of 2017/04/26 applied. These are corrected now.
  • 2019/04/09: Some LBNL/CAM5.1.2-0.25degree All-Hist/est1/v1-0 and Nat-Hist/CMIP5-est1/v1-0 day/atmos/hurs and mon/atmos/hurs files had not had the division-by-100 correction of 2017/04/26 applied. These are corrected now.
  • 2018/02/27: All LBNL/CAM5.1-0.25degree, LBNL/CAM5.1-1degree, LBNL/CAM5.1-2degree, and LBNL/CAM5.1.2-0.25degree (except possible v1-0-aero) simulations did not in fact include forcing from volcanic aerosols, due to a bug in CESM1 that reads and outputs volcanic aerosol burden but fails to communicate that data to the radiation scheme. Details are in this report.
  • 2017/10/04: NCC/NorESM1-HAPPI/*/*/*/mon/atmos/hus files had incorrect data for the 700hPa level. These files have been replaced with corrected ones today.
  • 2017/10/03: rlus and rsus had been improperly calculated for ETH/CAM4-2degree, LBNL/CAM5-1-025degree, LBNL/CAM5-1-1degree, LBNL/CAM5-1-2-025degree, and LBNL/CAM5-1-2degree. Values are being corrected.
  • 2017/10/02: NCC/NorESM1-HAPPI/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-est1/v1-0 used December 2100 ozone values for all months. A "v2-0" with corrected aerosols has been published today.
  • 2017/09/12: MPI-M/ECHAM6-3-LR/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0 and MPI-M/ECHAM6-3-LR/Plus20-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0, and thus ClimateAnalytics/ECHAM6-3-LR/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0 and ClimateAnalytics/ECHAM6-3-LR/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0 used incorrect sea ice concentrations and have been removed from the portal. Corrected versions will be added shortly.
  • 2017/09/12: MIROC/MIROC5/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v2-0 and thus ClimateAnalytics/MIROC5/Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v2-0 used incorrect sea surface temperatures and has been removed from the portal. A corrected version will be added shortly.
  • 2017/07/20: The last several years of LBNL/CAM5-1-2-025degree All-Hist/est1/v1-0 and Nat-Hist/CMIP5-est1/v1-0 had problems correctly using an input file. Please see here (ods) or here (xls) for details.
  • 2017/06/06: ETH/CAM4-2degree Plus15-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0 and Plus20-Future/CMIP5-MMM-est1/v1-0 used an unintended value for the CO2 concentration. A replacement v2-0 will be available soon.
  • 2017/04/26: LBNL/CAM5.1-1degree and LBNL/CAM5.1-0.25degree hurs was exactly 100 times too large for many files. Either divide by 100 when necessary (it is obvious) or download the corrected files.
  • 2016/03/10: There was an error in the greenhouse gas setting for year 2013 of the MIROC/MIROC5/All-Hist/est1/v1-0 simulations. This has been corrected, and all MIROC/MIROC5/All-Hist/est1/v1-0 simulations have now been replaced with MIROC/MIROC5/All-Hist/est1/v2-0.
