The objective of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) is to better understand past, present and future climate changes arising from natural, unforced variability or in response to changes in radiative forcing in a multi-model context.
For more information, see CMIP6 background.
In addition to the required DECK and historical simulations, we will be submitting to the following MIPs:
- CM2: FAFMIP, OMIP, RFMIP, ScenarioMIP, DAMIP, SIMIP
- ESM: CMIP, C4MIP, CDRMIP, RFMIP, ScenarioMIP, DAMIP
CMIP6 Output (data, errata and papers)
CMIP6 data are available through the following portals:
- NCI: Complete ACCESS data can be accessed through the project fs38 (located at /g/data/fs38/publications), while the NCI replication node (for non-ACCESS models) can be accessed though project oi10 (located at /g/data/oi10/replicas). These projects can be joined via the NCI Mancini portal.
- ESGF: The Earth System Grid Federation is a collaboration that supports CMIP activities and operate data and metadata facilities to enable the storage and analysis of CMIP6 data through several nodes, which can be searched for relevant datasets through an online interface.
If you are using ACCESS data in a publication, please cite the relevant DOIs. A list of all CMIP6 MIP-level DOIs, including all ACCESS submissions, can be found here.
