Climate Science Data Access and Analysis at NCI

Monday 10 June – 1:30pm to 5:30pm 

The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) hosts a large collection of Climate and Weather data, from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) and derived climate model output to observational and reanalysis data. The data is co-located with NCI’s High Performance Computing (HPC) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) which provides an interactive cloud environment for data visualisation and analysis.

This workshop will incorporate hands-on examples of searching and accessing the large volumes of climate data available at NCI, as well as how to take advantage of the software and tools available to analyse and process this data. The workshop will cover the process of requesting additional datasets and discovering what is globally available. The workshop will provide substantial Q&A opportunities for those new to CMIP data as well as those familiar with earlier CMIP phases looking to move into CMIP6 analysis. With CMIP6 being a priority for 2019, we will prioritise examples using this data, including demonstration of tools that have been developed as part of the Climate Science Data Enhanced Virtual Laboratory (DEVL).
