Preliminary agenda for Results Workshop, output data statistics, corrupt tasmin_v2 file in hadgem2-es spinup data and file names/formats conventions


Posted by Lila Warszawski on July 24, 2012

1) We are happy to provide you with a preliminary agenda for the ISI-MIP Results Workshop in September.

We have focused on maximizing the time available for modelling teams to collaborate on paper writing. So in order to gain the maximum benefit it would be expedient if paper authors/groups would coordinate what to present in individual sessions prior to the workshop. Please note that sessions are subject to change, we would welcome your feedback on the draft agenda and are looking forward to incorporating your ideas into the program.

We also encourage you to regularly visit the website www.isimip.org where we now have a separate menu point named "Workshops" to view the program-in-progress, which we will be working on over the summer, and learn more information and updates about the upcoming Results workshop as they become available. Please remember to register by Monday, 13 August 2012 by filling in the online registration form which you will find in the News & Events section on the first page of the website.

2) We have set up some output data statistics to give you an overview of the output data already submitted to the DKRZ server. You can access the statistics under the following link, which is also accessible via our website www.isimip.org -> Output data:

http://vre1.dkrz.de:8080/thredds/catalog/isi_mipEnhanced/upload_stats/catalog.html

The files are updated daily, and include a detailed list of all available output files, and a list of newly added files. A simplified overview of models for which output has been submitted will also be available soon.

3) There was a corrupt tasmin_v2 file in hadgem2-es spinup data (tasmin_bced_1960_1999_hadgem2-es_historical_1971-1980_detrended.nc), which has been replaced on the DKRZ server and can be used again. If you believe you may have downloaded the corrupted version of this file, please check the file size - the correct file has approx. 825MB in zipped format. We apologize for any inconvenience!

4)
Regarding submission of output data, we would like to kindly remind you of the specifications made in section 5 of the simulation protocol (see www.isimip.org > Simulation protocol), in particular the conventions for file names and formats. It is very important that you strictly adhere to those conventions when preparing your files, so that other project participants can access and properly interpret your results. Please do not hesitate to contact us in any case of doubt.
