How are the CM2.0 model output files arranged in directories on the GFDL Data Portal?
On the GFDL Data Portal, CM2.0 model output is stored as netCDF files in directories that are arranged as follows under http://nomads.gfdl.noaa.gov/dods-data/gfdl_cm2_0/
Possible values for gfdl_cm2_0 GfdlExperimentName:
CM2Q_Control-1860_d2 CM2Q_Control-1990_e2 CM2Q-d2_1861-2000-AllForc_h1 CM2Q-d2_1861-2000-AllForc_h2 CM2Q-d2_1861-2000-AllForc_h3 CM2Q-d2_1PctTo2x_i1 CM2Q-d2_1PctTo4x_j1 CM2Q-h1_SresA1B_x2 CM2Q-h1_SresA2_w2 CM2Q-h1_SresB1_y2 CM2Q-h1_Stable-2000_s2
The GFDL CM2.0 experiment names can be associated with the IPCC/PCMDI experiment names by referring to the table on the CM2.0 experiments and metadata web page.
The meaning of pp is post-processed, indicating that the raw output of the model has been processed to get it into the form being served.
Possible values for component:
atmos ice_interp ice_tripolar land ocean_interp ocean_tripolar
Model output files for the ocean and sea ice model components are available either on the native, tripolar grid used by those model components or interpolated onto a more regular, latitude x longitude grid. The horizontal grid locations of tripolar vs interp only differ north of ~65N.
Meanings of the directory names ts, static and av:
