CVDP | Data Repository
The CVDP Data Repository holds CVDP output (graphics and data files) from numerous CMIP and CESM integrations. To access the output, simply select Images or Data for the desired model intercomparison listed in the Table below. The data are stored as tar files: within each tar file there are multiple netCDF files corresponding to each component member included in the comparison. To see an example of the netCDF file metadata, click here.
The CVCWG freely distributes these results for non-commerical purposes and is not responsible for errors in the data or within the CVDP. Use the distributed data at your own risk. Note that not all output fields may be relevant for a particular set of model simulations. For example, modes of decadal variability are not meaningful if the period of record is too short.
When presenting results either in oral or written form, please acknowledge the NCAR Climate Analysis Section's Climate Variability Diagnostics Package. An overview paper of the CVDP can also be cited:

Questions and feedback about the CVDP Data Repository are welcomed and should be posted on the CESM Bulletin Board.
