Coupled Model Intercomparison Phase: CMIP3, CMIP5, CORDEX (ESGF) and CMIP6

NCI is now managing the CMIP collections as well as other ESGF datasets, on behalf of the climate community. We are still collaborating with NCI, CSIRO and BoM on specific points. This means all official communication around CMIP6 is coming from NCI. If you want to receive their regular updates you have to be part of the CMIP groups: oi10 (CMIP6), al33 and rr3 (CMIP5), cb20 (CMIP3).

NCI CMIP Projects

Group ID Purpose
oi10 (join) CMIP6 ESGF Replicas
fs38 (join) CMIP6 Australian Published Data
al33 (join) CMIP5 and CORDEX ESGF Replicas
rr3 (join) CMIP5 and CORDEX Australian Published Data
cb20 (join) CMIP3 ESGF Replicas

The information for CMIP data is available from the CMIP community space 

You will find there:

  • how the data is organised on the server
  • links to the official documentation
  • how to access the dataset
  • how to cite the data
  • available CMIP relative tools, services and training

This is a "community" resource so you can help in making it more useful by adding comments and feedback.

If you're not an NCI user you can find information on the NCI ESGF node .

We do maintain a query tool: CleF Climate Finder that allows you to explore what CMIP5 and CMIP6 data is available locally. For more information refer to the CleF documentation.

Reminder: CMIP3 data is not anymore accessible in the ua6 project. There is a new project: cb20.

Reminder: CMIP5 data is not anymore accessible in the ua6 project. There are two new projects: rr3 for the Australian data and al33 for an updated replica of the other models. Refer to the CMIP community site for more information.
