Tool and Code Repository
The new vserion
of the CCMVal Diagnostic tool is now available from this website: CCMValDiag3.0.tar.gz
Packaged observations/reanalyses and sample
are available at: ftp://ftp.cgd.ucar.edu/archive/CCMValDiag/CCMValDiag3.0/"
The CCMVal Diagnostic
tool is described in a technical note in GMD:
Gettelman, A., Eyring, V., Fischer, C.,
Shiona, H., Cionni, I., Neish, M., Morgenstern, O.,
Wood, S. W., and Li, Z., A
community diagnostic tool for chemistry climate model validation,
Geosci. Model Dev., 5, 1061-1073, doi:10.5194/gmd-5-1061-2012, 2012.
more detailed set of instructions for installing and running the tool
is also available in a ‘Readme’ file in the source code distribution.
This web-site will also report any bug fixes, and will serve as a code
repository for Chemistry-Climate Model (CCM) evaluation.
development of the CCMVal diagnostic tool was supported by the
Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling and Analysis Program (ACMAP) grant
NNX08AK54G and by the InfraStructure for the European Network for Earth
System Modeling (IS-ENES) project (WP9/JRA3) which is funded by the
European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme. Support has also
been provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR,
USA), the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR,
Germany), the University of Toronto (Canada) and the National Institute
forWater and Atmosphere (NIWA, New Zealand). NCAR is supported by the
United States National Science Foundation. We acknowledge the modeling
groups for making their simulations available for this analysis, the
Chemistry-Climate Model Validation (CCMVal) Activity for WCRP’s (World
Climate Research Programme) SPARC (Stratospheric Processes and their
Role in Climate) project for organizing and coordinating the model data
analysis activity, and the British Atmospheric Data Center (BADC) for
collecting and archiving the CCMVal model output.
