RGMA is pleased to announce the coordination of a CMIP6 analysis activity this July. This event is open to any RGMA-affiliated researcher who is interested in participating. For those in the Berkeley area, LBNL’s CASCADE team will have an onsite space available for participants to join together for the week’s hackathon.
Additional details from the RGMA Committee for this event:Sign up sheetAs a reminder, here is the spreadsheet where you can sign up, and declare your intended analysis activity:Note that the column for people to state their NERSC user name, since we will need to add everyone to the cmip6 group.NERSC user account
Also, if you don’t have a NERSC user account yet, please request one:
Please contact the PI of the RGMA-funded project that you are most closely associated with to get the project name, and to add you to their project. And please update your status in the spreadsheet, and include your username.Data needs400 TB of data has already been downloaded to our joint CMIP6 disk allocation on Cori (/global/cscratch1/sd/cmip6). Priority has been monthly output of CMIP data (DECK + historical). We would still like to get a better idea of additional data needs, so that we can prioritize data downloads. So please fill in this form at your earliest convenience:We already compiled quite a bit of information from PCMDI in these documents, which contains many useful links:We have also downloaded portions of various observational and reanalysis datasets including ERA5, ERA-Interim, MERRA2, NARR, ana4mip, esg_obs4mips, obs-CFMIP, and obs4mips.Sharing scriptsSharing scripts to perform common functions (e.g., for generating climatologies, regridding, making plots) between participants will be a great benefit from this coordinated activity. If you have ideas how to facilitate this, we would like to hear from you. A range of ideas have been mentioned (from a simple directory where everyone can copy scripts to a github repository); but requirements from the contributors would be different (documentation, etc.). Let us know if you are interested in coordinating this aspect of the activity.Mailing listI started a mailing list for this activity, rgma_cmip6_
