Most ISIMIP datasets are published in the ISIMIP Repository located at data.isimip.org. The data is organized by simulation round, e.g. ISIMIP3a, and data products:
- Input data - the data used to drive the impact models, exactly as described in the ISIMIP simulation protocols.
- Output data - the climate-impacts simulation data provided by participating modelling groups, corresponding to the output variables described in the ISIMIP simulation protocol.
- Secondary input data - data that have been derived from or are related to the input data, but not described in the simulation protocol (e.g. with a differnt spatial or temporal resolution).
- Secondary output data - simulation data that goes beyond the simulation protocol or data that have been derived by processing the ISIMIP output data, but do not correspond to output variables described in the simulation protocol.
Submitted output data are only published after an embargo period and after explicit permission by the modelling group is given (see also: Workflow for contributions to ISIMIP).
Currently, we are in the beta stage of the development of the portal. While more features will be added to the data portal, we encourage you to use the portal for searching and downloading. Please don't hesitate to report bugs and pitfalls that need to be fixed.
For a transitional period we will operate the new portal and the old ESGF server in parallel.
