Welcome to NCI's CMIP Community Page

This is the homepage for information and updates relating to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) data and activities at NCI for use by the Australian climate science community.



CMIP6 replication underway at NCI

NCI has begun replication of initial CMIP6 data into the project space oi10 - request membership through

On track for CMIP6 Publications

Testing of the upgrades to NCI's ESGF node for CMIP6 is complete with the production node deployment underway:

  CMIP6 Data download continuing as data becomes available

Currently ~30TB of CMIP6 data replicated to NCI under project oi10.

  Retraction of CMIP6 data at NCI

To keep up to date on downloaded data affected by logged errata, watch the CMIP6 Dataset Errata page.

  Initial release of CMIP6

CMIP6 data is available for download and analysis under a trial period.

CMIP6 Status

The ESGF portal to CMIP6 model output is open. Contributions from modelling centers is expected to continue throughout the second half of 2018 and into 2019.

NCI has established high-capacity links with other ESGF primary nodes in the US, UK and Europe. This means we are well placed to serve as a primary data service node, hosting authoritative copies of high use replica data. For researchers with access to NCI, a large collection of data will be available with thorough version control and data management as stipulated by the standard procedures set out by the ESGF. Additionally, for Australia and Oceania researchers without access to the NCI facilities, data will be available for download from a Tier 1 source that is much closer than was previously possible. Current replica download variables and data request information can be found here.
