DYAMOND Summer Simulations

Getting the data

You are interested in the DYAMOND Summer data, please contact the . Also take a look the wiki page of the MPI-M
If you work with the data stored at DKRZ, we request that you acknowledge DKRZ and ESiWACE in any publication resulting from this work.


Contributing to the project

The DYAMOND protocol (pdf) specifies a simulation of forty days and forty nights, beginning at 1 August 2016, using global models with a storm resolving grid spacing of 5 km or less. As initial and boundary data, daily sea-surface temperatures as well as global meteorological analysis taken from the European Center for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are provided. The DYAMOND protocol was kept as simple as possible to encourage participation and ensure a fast turn-around.
Nine different groups from six national entities across three continents submitted results and demonstrated that such simulations are nowadays doable.

Initial Data for 1 August 2016

A IFS grib file with initial data for 1 August 2016 is provided here. To process the data, you may use cdo or eccodes.
A NetCDF file, basically equivalent with the grib input, is provided here.
Alternatively, the initial data can be directly retrieved from the MARS database at ECMWF using this request.

Data for Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice:  IFS data (7 day means) are provided here.
