# Using intake together with CDO¶

These examples were provided by Florian Ziemen (ziemen@dkrz.de) for use on the Levante Supercomputer of DKRZ. The notebook is based on the icon-datashader notebook, and gives a hint on how to process data from the intake catalog with cdo.

Some of the ideas were contributed by Lukas Kluft, Tobi Kölling, and others. The examples are by no means meant to be perfect. They should just provide some input on how things can be done.

## Preparations¶

[1]:

# basics
import intake
import xarray as xr
import dask  # memory-efficient parallel computation and delayed execution (lazy evaluation).
import subprocess as sp


### Paths for storing images and a data cache¶

[2]:

%run gem_helpers.ipynb

uid = getpass.getuser()
image_path = make_tempdir("intake_demo_plots")
data_cache_path = make_tempdir("intake_demo_data")


### Helper functions¶

[3]:

# this function is also part of the gem helpers

def get_list_from_cat(catalog, column):
"""A helper function for getting the contents of a column in an intake catalog.

Call with the catalog to be inspected and the column of interest."""
return sorted(catalog.unique(column)[column]["values"])


## The catalog containing all the data¶

[4]:

catalog_file = "/work/ka1081/Catalogs/dyamond-nextgems.json"

[5]:

cat = intake.open_esm_datastore(catalog_file)
cat


ICON-ESM catalog with 130 dataset(s) from 88823 asset(s):

unique
variable_id 546
project 2
institution_id 12
source_id 19
experiment_id 4
simulation_id 12

time_min 918

# a somewhat closer look using get_from_cat
get_from_cat(cat, ["experiment_id", "source_id", "simulation_id"])
# print ("\n".join(get_from_cat (cat, "variable_id")))

## Selecting ‘tas’ from the catalog¶

[7]:

var = "tas"
hits = cat.search(simulation_id=["dpp0066", "dpp0067"], variable_id=[var])
hits


ICON-ESM catalog with 2 dataset(s) from 479 asset(s):

unique
variable_id 37
project 1
institution_id 1
source_id 1
experiment_id 1
simulation_id 2
realm 1
frequency 1
time_reduction 1
grid_label 1
level_type 1
time_min 406
time_max 406
grid_id 1
format 1
uri 479

## The CDO-relevant part¶

### Getting the file names¶

[8]:

file_cat = {}
for simulation_id in ("dpp0066", "dpp0067"):
file_cat[simulation_id] = get_list_from_cat(
hits.search(simulation_id=simulation_id), "uri"
)


## Feeding things into CDO¶

[9]:

outfile_dict = {}
for simulation_id, files in file_cat.items():
outfile = f"{data_cache_path}/{var}_monstd_{simulation_id}.nc"
if not os.access(outfile, os.R_OK):
query = (
[
"cdo",
"-P",
"8",
"-monstd",
f"-select,name={var}",
"[",
]
+ files[:10]
+ ["]", outfile]
)
# Note, we only use the first 10 files to save time (the [:10] in files[:10]). Remove the [:10] to compute over the whole experiment.
print(query)
sp.run(query)
outfile_dict[simulation_id] = outfile
