Climate Diagnostics Benchmark (CDB)

In support of ExArch Work Package 3: "Climate Diagnostics"

Draft Documentation

 Frédéric Laliberté and  Paul Kushner, 2011-2012, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The CDB was tested on the CICLAD compute server at the IPSL and on the login nodes at BADC.

Overview of scope and structure.

The CDB is intended to provide a simple framework to write CMIP5-oriented climate diagnostics scripts. Its aims are:

  • Simplify the development of climate diagnostics on ESG servers
  • Benchmark a server-side computing framework
  • Help in the timely delivery of model intercomparisons
