The Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma) Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) Dataset

The Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma) Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) Dataset The Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma) Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) Dataset provides the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) node on an internationally-coordinated system of climate model data dissemination developed specifically for the World Climate Research Programme’s Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5). More specifically, this dataset provides the department's climate model output for international use, particularly in support of the IPCC 5th Assessment. This dataset is of use in sophisticated climate model validation and climate change impact studies. The CCCma ESGF Dataset is compliant with specific international standards to ensure interoperability with other international climate modelling institutions. Data formats are complex; documentation is available at http://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/output_req.html. Note: This dataset comprises roughly 47TB of model output, in the CMIP specified file structure and NetCDF format. Data license agreement: This dataset is subject to the Open Government Licence - Canada. If the data are subject to any other agreements, these will be specifically noted with the data. 2021-07-30 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentClimateModelling Modeling InformationHTML https://cmip-pcmdi.llnl.gov/cmip5/output_req.html
