Documenting changes to uploaded ISIMIP simulations


Posted by Lila Warszawski on Jan. 19, 2016

As many of you are already conducting analyses of the ISI-MIP2.1a simulation runs, we would like to ensure that you can keep track of when modelling groups replace their simulations on the DKRZ server.  For this reason we have placed a table on the ISI-MIP website under For Modellers>ISI-MIP2>Output Data>Uploads (link), where all file replacements will be documented, including a short description of the reason for the replacement.

Although we do our best to keep track of file replacements, Matthias Büchner (buechner@pik-potsdam.de) would greatly appreciate a short email from you if you replace a file, including the reasons for doing so.

It is obviously extremely important for the consistency of the analyses that you use the most up-to-date versions of the data.  We therefore suggest that you check this table regularly, and in particular before submitting your papers.

For a full list of models that have uploaded ISI-MIP2.1a simulations, you can always check this page <http://vre2.dkrz.de:8080/isimip2_uploadstats/overview.txt>, which also lists the date of the most recent file upload (which may be a new file or a file replacement).
