Data on ESGF – LLNL ESGF node (image to the right)

Use search options in ESGF to zoom in on the data you are looking for. The image on the right shows what search criteria are possible. You can also use a more detail search and look for a string in the file name for example.

The E3SM v1 data published so far falls into one of the experiments:

  • piControl – for the lower res CMIP6 DECK simulation
  • 1950-control  – for the high resolution HiResMIP-like simulation

So far the data published belongs to the Science Driver:

  • Water Cycle
 You can choose the data belonging to one of the 4 main categories roughly  aligned with model component, they are:
  • atmos – for atmosphere component related data
  • land – for the land and mosart components related data
  • ocean – for ocean component related data
  • sea-ice – for the sea ice component related data

Currently published data has version 1.0 which shown in options as “1 0” .

The data is either in as is on a native grid or is regridded

  • native grid – this is the grid that a component is using in the simulation, it is different for different components
  • regridded to 129×256 lon-lat uniform grid

The data can be in several different time frequencies:

  • 3hr – three hourly
  • 6hr – sic hourly
  • day – daily
  • mon – monthly
  • monClim – monthly climatologies
  • seasonClim  – seasonal climatologies

There are three data types possible

  • climo  – for climatologies
  • model-output  – for raw model output
  • time-series  – time-series of a particular variable for all simulated times

The currently published simulations correspond to the periods:

  • Perpetual 1850 – for the lower res CMIP6 DECK simulation
  • Perpetual 1950 – for the high resolution HiResMIP-like simulation

The atmosphere and land components grids for those simulations are:

  • 0 25deg – for the high resolution HiResMIP-like simulation
  • 1deg – for the lower res CMIP6 DECK simulation

 

 

The ocean and sea ice components grids are variable:

  • 18-6km – for the high resolution HiResMIP-like simulation
  • 60-30km – for the lower res CMIP6 DECK simulation
