ACCESS CoE simulations

Revision as of 21:22, 11 March 2019 by S.wales (talk | contribs)

Dr Sophie Lewis of the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne has completed a series of model simulations for the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5) project. She used the ACCESS model (both version 1-0 and 1-3), a general circulation climate model developed as a collaboration between CSIRO and BoM. She run three ensembles for the historical experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using historical forcing. One simulation uses ACCESS1-0 (ensemble r2i1p1), the other two use ACCESS1-3 (ensembles r2i1p1 and r3i1p1). She also completed three ensembles (r1i1p1, r2i1p1 and r3i1p1) for the historicalNat experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using only natural forcing. And three ensembles (r1i1p1, r2i1p1 and r3i1p1) for the historicalGHG experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using historical well-mixed greenhouse gases forcing.

Publication and access

The output of the simulations has been post-processed and quality checked and then published on the NCI Earth System Grid node (| ESG NCI node) . Both the CMIP5 and the original raw output are hosted on raijin. The raw output is stored on massdata under project w97. The CMIP5 output is hosted on /g/data/p66/CMIP5/published/CMIP5/output1/CSIRO-BOM/ACCESS.... -- this includes the output of other ACCESS simulations performed by CAWCR On /g/data/p66/pfu599/CMIP5/output/CSIRO-BOM/ACCESS... -- this includes also CMIP5 output in preparation for publication. More information on the post-processing and quality check process are listed in the ACCESS publishing procedure page. These datasets are accessible to anyone that has a NCI account, to access the raw output please contact climate_help@nf.nci.org.au More information on the CAWCR simulations is available on the | CAWCR ACCESS wiki.

All the simulations are currently published on the ESG. Metadata for the same collections have been published on the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) metadata repository, | Research Data Australia (RDA)

Due to a bug with the RDA website while all the records are found, no more than five will be shown, so here is a complete list:
