with 10 day spin-up peripode and 30 days analysis periode

Field Experiment:

NAR-VAL2 tropical field study


Global atmosphere models with a storm resolving grid spacing of 5 km or less. Detailed information can be found at the DYAMOND Summer protocol(pdf).

Working with the data

Direct file access

DYAMOND Summer data sets can be found in the The DYAMOND Data Library at /work/bk1040/DYAMOND/data/summer_data/ stored at the DKRZ’s Mistral supercomputer. The data sets are read-only, so you will have to define the respective subfolder as the source directory for your post-processing scripts in your home folder. Since the quota of your home directory is limited to 24 GiB, we recommend to store project data under /work/bb1153/<user-account>/ and use the temporary storage in your scratch folder /scratch/*/<user-account>/ for processing of large data sets.

To access the DYAMOND data library you will need a user account for the project “1153”, named “DYAMOND Data Intercomparison” at DKRZ. To join the project, please visit https://luv.dkrz.de. For more information about how to start at DKRZ see: https://docs.dkrz.de/doc/getting_started/index.html.

For model and run descriptions see Participating models and description above.
