NDG3 test dataset

A subset of the Famous and HadCM3 datasets have been bundled together for the purpose of testing NDG3 data components. The bundle is available at  http://home.badc.rl.ac.uk/spascoe/ndg3/ndg_test_data.tar.bz2 and is 235M compressed, 620M uncompressed. The bundle contains the following yearly fields from the transient run of each dataset:

  • air_temperature
  • cloud_area_fraction
  • sea_water_salinity
  • sea_ice_thickness

These fields have been chosen to cover both atmosphere and ocean and include both surface and multi-level fields. They also span various different grids.

To use the dataset download over the web then:

$ tar zjf ndg_test_data.tar.bz2
$ cd ndg_test_data
$ python scanme.py

Use which ever python executable has csml installed.
