CMIP6 Submission

By August 20th, 2019

CMIP6 Details

 

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.

 

CMIP6 Submission

 

We are submitting climate simulations from our two versions of ACCESS: CM2 and ESM1.5.

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

For the current status of our CMIP6 experiments and submissions: CM2 status and ESM status.

 

CMIP6 Output (data, errata and papers)

 

Data:
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.

Errata:
Errata documentation for following retracted CMIP data can be found here, which includes ACCESS models (filtered through the ‘Source ID’ drop down).

Publications:
A list of relevant research papers can be found here; including papers focusing on ACCESS data, and multi-model analyses that include ACCESS models.

Citations:
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.
