Obs4MIPs is undergoing further expansion in coordination with CMIP6
Obs4MIPs is in the process of becoming more flexible to accommodate a wider variety of data that could be useful for the evaluation of climate models. Here are some examples of efforts underway:
The obs4MIPs data specifications have been revised to match the new CMIP6 data requirements.
CMOR software now accommodates the preparation of observational data (CMOR3) and complementary documentation is being developed specifically to assist obs4MIPs data contributors.
The obs4MIPs search terms (or “facets”) are being modified in coordination with changes made for CMIP6.
New Dataset Features - See items in upper left menu
It is now possible for obs4MIPs datasets to be accompanied with a wide variety of supplemental data and metadata. Examples include uncertainty estimates, codes for forward models, verification data, additional documentation, etc.
These and other enhancements continue to be implemented. Questions and comments are encouraged and should be sent to obs4MIPsfirstname.lastname@example.org.
