Chapter 6. Post Processing CCSM Output

A completed run of CCSM4.0 will produce a large number of files, each with many variables. Post processing these files presents several unique challenges. Various techniques and tools have been developed to meet these challenges. Each component maintains its own post-processing utility suite that can be accessed from the release code repository. Component post-processing utilities are currently provided only as a service to the community. Informal community support is provided via the CCSM bulletin board. General questions should be submitted to this bulletin board; however, any bugs found in the packages should be reported to the appropriate working group liaison.

Once approval is granted for access to the release repository, users may freely download the diagnostic packages. Users are urged to 'export' the packages from the repository rather than checking them out. For example:

> svn export

will result in the user obtaining the post processing utilities "amwg_diag2.5". For more details on utilizing the release repository, please see Downloading CCSM for more details.
